Published: June 5, 2012
3 p.m. Tuesday, June 5, Japan time: All clear at Yokosuka, folks. Fleet Activities Yokosuka reverted to Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness All-Clear at 8:01 a.m. according to a base spokesman.
Wednesday’s forecast calls for north-northeasterly winds of 20 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35 mph in the early afternoon as Typhoon Mawar rumbles a good 260 miles east of Yokosuka around 3 p.m. Wednesday.
Okinawa took one wind gust of 47 mph, that at Kadena Air Base at 2:34 a.m. Tuesday. And the 6 to 8 inches of forecast rain? Only a half-inch fell.
More good news: It appears the Joint Typhoon Warning Center’s public Web site is back up and running.
