Published: October 7, 2012
11 a.m. Monday, Oct. 8, Japan time: PST is keeping an eyeball on Tropical Storm Prapiroon, which spawned overnight Sunday and is lurking nearly 800 miles south-southeast of Okinawa, drifting slowly west.
Joint Typhoon Warning Center says Japan and Korea appear safe for the moment, while Okinawa could feel some of its effects by next week, though a direct hit appears unlikely.
We’ll keep a sharp lookout as the week nears an end.
