Hello Friends and Neighbours,

Just a quick friendly Public Service Announcement (PSA) for you. A pretty sizeable typhoon is coming this way and expected to make landfall later on today, perhaps this evening. Typhoon warnings, even when not seeming so bad at the moment, ought to be taken seriously. The weather can change suddenly and there there is no need to find yourself in an unsafe situation.

Various summer events, including the Awa Dance Festival, have been canceled or rescheduled.

So, in the meantime, please find a good place to stay dry and sheltered for the next day. Drink well. Eat well. Have a rest.

And stay safe!
