Flood warning and landslip alert here by the sea in England

Japan assess damage after a huge typhoon ripped across south-west Japan, killing at least 67 in the past week.

How awful for people in Japan who have to endure monthly earthquakes, fears of gigantic sea waves, and now typhoons and flooding. Thankfully, I live in house built with solid foundations on a bedrock of flint, high up on a hill where there is no chance of flooding.

Note, I have emailed this entry and photo directly from flickr to this page. It's a joy to use and free of charge at the moment too. If you click into the photo it should take you to my photo gallery and lead you to exploring flickr. Please excuse the mess, I've not done much tidying or labelling.
