Watch a Typhoon in Japan Blow Away a Minivan as if it were a Toy

Japan can’t seem to get a break. After the devastating Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami in March of 2011, a super typhoon nicknamed Jelawat struck Japan’s main island of Honshu on Sunday claiming the life of at least two people and leaving more than 100 injured, according to the latest reports.

And mind you, Jelawat is actually the second powerful tropical cyclone to hit the region in the past two weeks…

A video shot by U.S. Marine Joseph M. Nolan at the American Marine base on Japan’s southern island of Okinawa demonstrates the sheer power of the typhoon when the violent winds of up to 234 km/h (145 mph) hurled a minivan into the air and across a residents’ parking lot.

Watch the footage of the incident in the video that follows.
