CAMP FOSTER, Okinawa — Uncertainty remained Saturday over where Typhoon Fengshen may be headed and how strong it will be once it gets there. Joint Typhoon Warning Center and 18th Wing Weather Flight officials at Kadena Air Base said computer-generated dynamic aids used to track such storms were "all over the place." Some plotted Fengshen to head toward Hong Kong; others had it curving over Luzon east toward Okinawa.

"The next day, depending on where it turns, should identify which way it will go," Kadena duty forecaster Staff Sgt. Daniel Blankenship said. The sixth typhoon of the northwest Pacific’s tropical cyclone season slowly rumbled over the central Philippines into Saturday evening, pummeling the region with 110-mph sustained winds and 121-mph gusts.

Military bus collides with van on Highway 8URUMA, Okinawa — A military bus headed to White Beach Naval Facility to pick up troops from an amphibious assault ship collided with an oncoming van on Highway 8 here Friday, injuring the 72-year-old driver of the van and her 73-year-old passenger, Okinawa police said.

The bus, driven by a 21-year-old Marine corporal from Camp Kinser, swerved into an oncoming lane at 2:25 p.m., striking the van head-on, according to the police report. The Marine told police that he turned his steering wheel sharply to the right when he thought he saw something jump in his way, a police spokesman said.

The driver of the van sustained fractures of both thighbones and ribs, and her passenger fractured her right arm, according to the report. Police said the collision is under investigation.
