Typhoon Damage July 2015

These photos show Hongu Town in Kumano after typhoon Nangka hit the area in July 2015. Typhoons usually affect the Kii Peninsula heavily. Each year there is some damage to roads and river embankments due to landslides and flooding.

The Nangka typhoon damage was ‘not as bad’ as the damage caused by Talas, a massive typhoon that devastated the Kumano area and many other parts of the Kii Peninsula in September 2011.
