Queen Maintenance & Typhoon

In the early hours on Tuesday May 13, Typhoon No. 6 (2015) blew through Zamami Village and Okinawa Island.  Although there were damaging-wind warnings (essentially a hurricane warning in the western hemisphere), Zamami Village’s infrastructure remained fully intact.  Typhoon 6 was the first typhoon to hit Zamami this year and an unusually early storm for the islands.
