HOLY CRAP: Watch as Japan’s Typhoon Jelawat Blows Car Away

Guys watching filming the 100-plus miles-per-hour winds off Typhoon Jelawat in Japan caught a “holy s*it” moment in a video that’s going viral. The winds picked up a vehicle parked at Camp Kinserm, an U.S. Marine base in Okinawa, and flipped it over and over again through the base parking lot before it finally came to a stop in a grassy area. The footage was shot by an apparently delighted U.S. Marine Joseph M. Nolan.

The typhoon raked Okinawa on Saturday with sustained winds up to 87 miles per hour, knocking out power to about half the island, injuring 50 people and killing one man. On Sunday, Jelawat hit mainland Japan, knocking out power for tens of thousands and injuring 145. The typhoon is the third to strike Okinawa in a month, and a witness said Jelawat seems like the worst one yet.
