One US Airmen dead, two missing, as typhoon lashes Japan
'A powerful typhoon lashed southern Japan on Sunday, churning up high waves that washed three American airmen out to sea and killed at least one before taking aim at Tokyo.
By late Sunday, Typhoon Phanfone (called "Neneng" in the Philippines) was off the coast of Shikoku in southwestern Japan, with winds of up to 144 kilometers (90 miles) per hour after hitting the regions of Okinawa and Kyushu, Japan's Meteorological Agency said.
One of the three airmen was found dead. The other two were missing, according to the Air Force and the Japanese coast guard.
They had been on Okinawa island's northern coast when they were overcome by the waves, according to Tsuguyoshi Miyagi of the coast guard's Okinawa branch.
The Air Force said the search for the missing airmen had been interrupted by rough seas. Their names were being withheld pending notification of relatives.'

Didn't they have weather reports? I wonder why they were out in the dangerous seasat the time.“Every day that they don’t find something is good for me.“ Billie Dunn
