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.
