Typhoon 1419 Vongfang

Tyhpoon Vongfang has been blowing its way through Okinawa this weekend. While the media has been hyping it as the strongest storm this year, the majority of the fury was spent over open seas. While there have been strong winds since early Friday morning, and Okinawa is still in the *red* zone, the danger has mostly passed since the typhoon has weakened to category 1.

As for Kumejima, were all safe if still in lock-down. Unfortunately, the timing has led to cancelled events all around Okinawa including the tug-of-war and the town`s sports day here.
