Typhoon Neoguri - Not What It Was Cracked Up To Be
Neoguri downgraded quite rapidly from a Category 4 to a 3 just before brushing past the Ryukyu Islands. Specifically Okinawa.
The winds strength is very intense. It shakes the structure of solid concrete buildings.
There has been a loss of power on Camp Kinser but most of the local Japanese areas still retain or had a very short period of power loss.
Ironically, some of the local Japanese have decided to take an unusual approach to the typhoon. A Japanese man ran naked thru the street in Naha, Okinawa.
The last photo (a split photo) is of a vehicle flipped during Typhoon Jelawat (top image) and the bottom is of a vehicle flipped during this typhoon.
