Typhoon 18W (Jelawat), # 22 A: The eye of the storm
Published: September 28, 2012
10:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 29, Japan time: Very shortly, the area where you stand on Okinawa could experience an unexpected calm period as the eye of Typhoon Jelawat passes over the island. No rain, no wind, unexpected sunshine and clear skies, although the ears may feel the same effect as if you were sent airborne 39,000 feet aboard an airliner. Resist all temptation to venture outside. You may feel as safe as in your mother’s arms, but at any instant, the rain and fierce winds could whip up again, worse than before and in the opposite direction. Be smart. Be safe.
