More than 40 people were injured, and one boy died. Nasty stuff. The photos of the area where the "suspected" tornado hit look pretty rough. Some houses are destroyed.
Hey, old guys ... anyone remember anything about tornado damage in Japan back in the "olden days?" I don't. Must be a climate change thing.
Edit: looks like there was at least one death due to lightning, too.

A little more research has revealed that there have been a few destructive tornados in Japan in the past, but the frequency does seem to be increasing.

That's probably a good idea.
Apparently there have been some biggies down in that area.
