19 UTC 4 Aug Okinawa Update

Good Morning Okinawa!  Well it is quite different this morning then it was last night.  Latest Forecast calls for winds in Okinawa to be 92 MPH Sustained Gusting to 120 mph!  Still this is no joke!  Plus with it sticking around for such a prolonged time it can still do a lot of damage.  As you know Songda has wind gust up to 125 mph so we are expecting the same thing but for a lot longer.  Remember any wobble here could make the winds a little stronger as well.  Remember to clean up around your areas if you havent already done so.  Here is the latest Time line pf events:

— Winds of 35 mph or greater, 3 a.m. Thursday.
— Winds of 40 mph or greater, 9 a.m. Thursday.
— Wind gusts of 58 mph or greater, 5 p.m. Thursday.
— Sustained 58-mph winds or greater, 5 p.m. Thursday-9 a.m. Saturday.
