Typhoon Krosa Bypasses Okinawa - Final Update
The outer bands of Typhoon Krosa, the latest tropical cyclone that came knocking on our door this season, have dissipated almost as quickly as the storm increased in intensity yesterday. The cyclone still remains a Category 4 typhoon. Here's a look at the weather conditions on Okinawa, at 6:16 a.m. 5 October 2007, as the storm heads towards Taiwan.
For a comparison look at what happens when the affects of a strong typhoon do hit island, I tried adding footage from Typhoon Man-Yi on Friday the 13th of July 2007. There seems to be a problem with the upload. The footage may be seen at this URL for the playlist Typhoon Shots
