Powerful winds and heavy rain hit the Japanese island of Okinawa as Typhoon Mayask moved through the area on Tuesday, September 1.
Local media reported winds speeds of up to 150 kilometres per hour being recorded on the island. Some gusts were strong enough to cause houses to collapse.
Japan’s Meteorological Agency issued warnings to local residents for flooding, high waves and high tides, particularly in the central and southern parts of Okinawa.
Typhoon Maysak was forecast to affect Japan overnight from Monday into Tuesday, and then to pass over the Korean peninsula from Tuesday into Wednesday. Credit: taemi_traveler via Storyful
