Asia Typhoon Neoguri: Strongest So Far in 2014

Typhoon Neoguri: Okinawa, Japan in Path of Strongest Typhoon So Far in 2014

Published: 5 Jul, 2014, weather.com





Typhoon Could Threaten Air Force Base



Typhoon Neoguri, the second typhoon of the 2014 Western Pacific season, threatens to become an extremely dangerous cyclone as it churns toward Okinawa and potentially other parts of Japan and East Asia.





Western Pacific Satellite




The system became a typhoon -- the Western Pacific equivalent of a hurricane -- on Friday.


The Joint Typhoon Warning Center, in a bulletin issued late Friday U.S. time, upped its forecast wind speeds for Neoguri to the equivalent of a Category 5 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale by the time the storm approaches Okinawa and the Ryukyu Islands by Monday (U.S. time).

Neoguri may then go on to affect western parts of the Japanese mainland by Tuesday or Wednesday. However, according to JTWC maps, the cone of uncertainty stretches anywhere from Shanghai on the Chinese coast to Tokyo in eastern Japan by that time, and includes parts of North and South Korea.




Neoguri Forecast Track from Weather Underground


Neoguri rapidly intensified into a 130 mph Category 4 equivalent typhoon on Saturday and is the strongest tropical cyclone of the year in the Western Pacific basin. The season's first typhoon, Faxai, reached minimal typhoon status with 75-mph winds in early March. It did not affect land.
Check back as we track this potentially dangerous typhoon.

Typhoon Stops Transport, Knocks out Power in Japan

By AP, 8 July 2014


TOKYO (AP)
A typhoon paralyzed transportation and knocked out power to thousands on the southern Japanese islands of Okinawa on Tuesday.
The Okinawan government said 17 people were injured, one seriously. Separately, a man was reported missing from a fishing boat in rough seas off Kyushu island, to the north.

One of the strongest and biggest typhoons to hit during Japan's summer, Typhoon Neoguri was packing sustained winds of 162 kilometers (100 miles) per hour and gusts up to 216 kph (134 mph) in late evening, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.

The storm was weakening, but forecasters said its wide area and slow movement could add to the potential damage. Japan is relatively well prepared for typhoons, but torrential rains could cause greater damage if the typhoon moves across the Japanese archipelago as expected on Thursday or Friday.

"Please refrain from nonessential activities and from approaching hazardous areas," said Meteorological Agency official Satoshi Ebihara. "Please show extreme caution."

Local airports were closed and nearly 600,000 people were advised to evacuate their homes, though most stayed put, taking refuge from the destructive winds, waves up to 14 meters (46 feet) high and storm surges that were set to intensify as the storm passed the main island of Okinawa in the evening and headed north toward Kyushu. Almost 100,000 homes remained out of electricity late Tuesday.

More than half of the 50,000 U.S. troops in Japan are based in Okinawa, the location of several bases, including Kadena, the biggest U.S. air base in Asia. An advisory on its website said all outdoor activity was prohibited due to the storm.
Television footage showed a building shattered, damaged storefronts and trees toppled as winds picked up in the Okinawan capital of Naha.

Forecasts show the storm tracking toward Kyushu and then across Japan's main island of Honshu. It is forecast to lose more of its power over land, but heavy rains could trigger landslides or flooding. Such risks are elevated by the storm's timing, on the tail end of Japan's summer rainy season.
Authorities in China and Taiwan also warned ships to stay clear of the storm.

Neoguri is a Korean word meaning "raccoon dog," a knee-high animal that looks like a cross between a dog and a raccoon but is a separate species common in East Asia.
