Natural disasters being recorded across Japan again today, Tropical Storm Toraji made landfall and a new Tornado ripped through Tochigi Yaita just north west of Mondays Tornado that rolled through Saitama Japan.
The Tornado caused roofing to blow off, damaged windows and tossed light items. A primary school was also damaged in the storm. No injuries have been reported at this time.
Given the amount of damage I would put intensity of this storm at a weak F1.
More information will be updated on this as it comes in.
This video was put out before we were informed of this Tornado, but it does have Severe Weather Warnings and other information on what is going on today.
This also comes the same day Tropical Storm made landfall in Western Japan and a 6.9m quake struck off the coast shaking much of the country. (Including me for about 30s.)
