Hojoki about natural disasters

I saw hurricane news in USA.
It was horrible power.
I am glad that you did not suffer any damage.
The typhoons in Japan also cause great damage.

Recently typhoon No. 22 was rare for a typhoon in September, heading west to Asia in the sea of south of Japan, it landed in Hong Kong through the Philippines and has caused serious damage.

In Hong Kong people would be surprised as it has few typhoons.
Natural disasters caused by abnormal weather occurred all over the world.
I recently read the classical essay "Hojoki" again, it was written in the Kamakura period of the 13th century, there were natural disasters, famine, a difficult-to-live world, etc.
I realized people in any periods also were feeling evanescent and vanity.
