Figure 5.2: Sunset Beach, Okinawa Japan. Photo taken by Katona Miller (Shippensburg University alumna) immediately following Typhoon Neoguri that crossed Okinawa Island on July 6, 2014. Neoguri was one of the largest typhoons to hit Japan in several decades. Sustained winds exceeded 100 miles per hour with gusts over 130 miles per hour reported as the storm came ashore. 600,000 people in Japan were advised to evacuate their homes, especially those located on or near the shoreline where 46 foot high waves and significant storm surge was predicted. Katona’s image shows evidence of erosion in front of the seawall built to help protect the highway from storm waves along the shoreline.
