It had looked like the super-typhoon Nanmadol (which sounds like a pain reliever made from Indian bread) was going to veer north and only brush the east coast of the ‘Wan. Now it appears Nanmadol has other ideas.
Thankfully, I’m on the west coast and protected from the worst of these things by the highest mountains in East Asia, but it still looks like this little island is about to take a very serious whipping. If you’re on the Pacific coast, batten down the hatches and head for higher ground. Good luck everyone.
