Published: August 26, 2012
2:30 Monday, Aug. 27, Japan time: Tropical Cyclone Condition of Readiness 1-SW -- for Storm Watch -- has been issued for Okinawa. This mean it now is safe to go outside. Assessment teams still will fan out to survey and check for damage, flooding, downed power lines and tree limbs, etc. Okinawa was still being lashed by 48 mph winds and heavy rains into evening and possibly early Tuesday morning.
