Watch Typhoon Jelawat flip a car, toss a dumpster in Japan
In the first video, U.S. Marines stationed at Camp Kisner record cars being pushed around the parking lot before a small car tips over, slides across the parking lot and then tumbles through the air. The second video shows a cherry Mazda RX-7 at Kadena Air Force Base come within feet of becoming another victim of the storm as a dumpster slides right past the car slamming into a minivan.
As bad as the videos look, things could have been much worse, as Jelawat had been recorded as a Super Typhoon with winds around 160 mph just earlier last week and was downgraded to a less powerful typhoon before making landfall. Check out the carnage the wind can cause in the videos below, but beware, there is quite a bit of explicit Not Safe For Work language in both.
