    “It is likely to come closest to Okinawa Tuesday morning, generating violent gales and high waves... and, in some areas, violent rains,” he said. ”Please be ready to evacuate before heavy rains begin to fall.”

    The US military was today evacuating a nuymber of aircraft from its base on Okinawa.

    “This is the most powerful typhoon forecast to hit the island in 15 years; we expect damaging winds to arrive by early Tuesday morning. So be prepared...Tie down your outdoor items and work with your neighbours to help them.”

    When El Nino is developing, it is more favorable for typhoons as they develop further east. 1997 was a hyperactive season for typhoons.
