Good news for cat-lovers! Cats on Okishima Island, Japan, are now safe from Typhoon Hagibis


Recently, Japan was hit by the worst typhoon to hit the country in the last 60 years, Typhoon Hagibis, causing millions of others in Tokyo and its surrounding areas to evacuate.

While residents were able to evacuate in time before the typhoon struck, many were also concerned about the cats in Okishima, an island where only cats live.

Typhoon Hagibis has just moved away from land on Sunday morning, as reported by CNA

Even though the powerful typhoon mainly hit the northeastern coast of Japan and its surrounding area, it caused massive destruction and flooding across 36 of the country’s prefectures.

With hurricane-like force, many people were also concerned about the cats which live in Okishima
