A strong typhoon is making its way north towards the island of Okinawa in Japan and is projected to hit Korea.
According to Hong Kong Observatory, Tropical Cyclone Sanba is currently classified as a super typhoon with its maximum sustained winds near its center of 210 kilometers per hour (130 mph).
The typhoon is expected to hit Okinawa on Sunday before heading to Korea. Forcasters say it will become weaker as it moves north.
Sanba's intensity is scaled at "violent" according to The Japanese Meteorological Agency on Friday.
The typhoon heading to Okinawa is the equivalent as a Category 5 hurricane. Storms that are west of the international dateline in the Northwest Pacific Ocean are dubbed typhoons instead of hurricanes.
"The center will pass close to Okinawa this weekend and then Sanba, in a less-intense but still potent state, is expected to reach South Korea Sunday night or Monday," weather.com said.
On Okinawa, the Stars and Stripes news website for U.S. military said, "We're already seeing/feeling Super Typhoon Sanba's most outer bands. If it's sitting outside the garage, put it inside. If the garage door is still open, shut it. If the trampoline is still up, take it down."
