A headline at CrissCross news:

Strong winds buffet Pacific areas of Japan

TOKYO — Strong winds hit extensive areas Sunday along the Pacific coast of Japan, with Tokyo experiencing the strongest wind on record for March, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

A maximum wind velocity of 120 kilometers per hour was logged in central Tokyo at 5:48 p.m., topping the record for March marked only two days earlier, at 115 kph, it said.

No kidding. I tried to do some birdwatching along the Tama River Sunday, darn near got blown off my feet several times. By the time I gave up, the left side of my face was numb.
