HUGE TYPHOON IS PASSING BY (台風が通過中)


The typhoon No.17 ( 'Tapah' ) is now passing by,
and trees are severely swayed with awful sounds and we are scared.
We are unlikely to sleep well tonight.

PREPARING FOR THE COMING TYPHOON (接近中の台風への準備)


The17th typhoon of this year 'Tapah' is coming from the south.
We prepared for the huge typhoon.
Jerusalem artichoke has started to flower at the height of more than 10 feet.
The flowers look like sunflower, and Jerusalem artichoke is also called sunchoke. 
We bound its stems to bamboo canes to prevent them
from breaking off by a gale of typhoon.

17号台風が南から接近しています.
この大型台風の対策をしました.
キクイモ(エルサレムアーティチョーク)が3メートル以上の高さで咲き始めています.
その花はヒマワリ(サンフラワー)にも似ていて、サンチョークとも呼ばれます.
その茎を竹竿に縛って、台風の強風で折れないようにしました.

At the fishing port in our neighbourhood,
fishing boats were evaculated from the sea to the ground by a crane.

近くの漁港では漁船を海から陸上へクレーンを使って避難していました.
