    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 Chibana Housing area but most of the local Japanese areas still retain or had a very short period of power loss.


    Here is a list of reported outages for US military facilities:

    - Plaza Housing area

    - Chibana Housing area

    - Sebille Manor, B5335

    - Camp Foster Tower B377

    - Arnold Terrace Housing area

    - Washington Heights Housing area

    - Voice of America Housing area

    - B4513, B4563A, B4506 on Camp Courtney Housing area

    - Navy Lodging


    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.


    Wind speeds are averaging 91km/h (56mph) and gusting up to 122km/h (75mph). These wind speeds have been calculated by the storm station on Camp Hansen.
