Latest reports reveal the first super typhoon of 2014 is currently battering Okinawa with southwest Japan as its final destination.

The destructive winds have peaked at 150 mph with a forecast of winds sustaining 160 mph in the next 24 hours according to the Washington Post. However, dry air pulled into the core of the system slowed down the typhoon slightly but residents have been notified to evacuate the area.

Currently, NHK tells us that "about 104,300 households have no power" and "about 540,000 people" have been asked to evacuate the 18 municipalities in Okinawa, Japan.

According to the Weather Channel, "Americans stationed at Kadena Air Base have finished preparations for the potential of a destructive storm" by "evacuating aircraft to other bases in the Pacific Sunday in anticipation of the typhoon."  More details of Typhoon Neoguri will be released as they become available.
