On October 19, 2004, Typhoon Tokage was whirling at 93 knots (about 107 mph) in the Pacific Ocean only about 23 miles south of Okinawa, Japan. Tokage, which is Japanese for "lizard," is a record tenth typhoon to make landfall in Japan this year. It came aground on Kyushu, the southernmost main island, forcing the closing of public schools and almost all transportation as it dumped up to 16 inches of rain in some areas and fueled 30-foot waves along the southern shores. The storm is credited with the deaths of 18 people over all of Japan, 9,900 evacuations, and 265,000 households without power. This is a true-color Terra MODIS image.
