And boy did I feel it!

This shook my building!.......

Sunday, December 5, 2004 at 16:48 JST TOKYO — A rapidly growing low-pressure system brought typhoon-class winds to the Japanese archipelago from Saturday night to Sunday morning, causing blackouts, stranding ships and paralyzing some air and land traffic.
In Tokyo, winds of 144 kilometer per hour were recorded early Sunday morning. Tokyoites later observed another meteorological record — the warmest temperatures for December — as warm southwesterly winds that followed the strong winds sent the mercury up to 25 degrees C shortly before noon.
