U.S. bases on Okinawa to revert to TCCOR All-Clear

7:15 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 30, Japan time:In about five hours, the commander of Kadena Air Base’s 18th Wing should be setting Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness All-Clear for U.S. bases on Okinawa. Nov. 30 signals the end of the northwest Pacific’s tropical cyclone season, which this year has seen 31 numbered storms, three above average for a typical season.

Of those 31, 13 became at least Category 1-equivalent typhoons and five strengthened into super typhoons. Those were Utor in August, Usagi in September, Francisco and Lekima in October and, earlier this month, Haiyan, which became the most powerful tropical cyclone ever recorded, affecting more than 13 million people in the Philippines, according to the U.N.
