A tornado brings chaos to the Tokyo belt cities of Koshigaya and Noda. At least 27 people have been injured. Local tv footage shows the severity of the damage left behind in Koshigaya. Some buildings have been reduced to piles of debris. Violent wind bursts have been spotted before in the suburban flatlands surrounding Tokyo. Rarely do they bring such destructive force to large areas of residential neighbourhoods.
