1 U.S. Airman Dead in Japanese Typhoon

Two members of the U.S. Air Force are still missing, and one is dead after being washed out to sea during a typhoon on Sunday at Kadena Air Base on the coast of Okinawa. The names of the three men are being kept secret until the kin are notified. The U.S. airmen were reportedly trying to take photos of Okinawa when they were swept into the surf from the typhoon. The U.S. airman who died was pulled from the sea by the Japanese coast guard. After the typhoon passed, Air Force helicopters and Japan coast guard rescue efforts to find the two missing airmen began. The heavy winds and rains forced 400,000 into temporary shelters, and officials issued evacuation advisories for half a million people.
