TOKYO, July 08. /ITAR-TASS/. The air traffic was disrupted with southern Japanese prefecture of Okinawa over approaching strong typhoon Neoguri on Tuesday. The main regional international airport was closed in the Okinawa administrative centre of Naha until the end of Tuesday.

All sea voyages of passenger ferryboats and other vessels are cancelled. The traffic was suspended on a highway and a monorail railway on Okinawa island. All schools and kindergartens are closed there.

Earlier in the day around 190 thousand residents in different Okinawa settlements were recommended not to go out in the street and take a shelter over coming typhoon which is considered to be the strongest in the last few decades. Hurricane winds gusting more than 50 metres per second are raging in some parts of Okinawa island. Around 9.2 thousand families were left without power supplies over broken power lines.

Typhoon Neoguri is heading for Okinawa at around 25 kilometres per hour. Winds reach 70 metres per second in the typhoon’s vortex.
