My wife and I went shopping after dinner on Saturday night. The parking lot at the large shopping mall was rather empty when we arrived at 8 p.m. When we got to the supermarket section, however, it was full of people. First, we went to buy vegetables, but there wasn’t much left. She chose some zucchini and celery, and we walked on to the fish and meat display. There was hardly anything on the shelves. My wife was very surprised and said, “I’ve never seen the shelves so empty!” Everyone was getting ready for Typhoon Trami (Typhoon 24). The shoppers I saw had baskets full of instant noodles!
