Typhoon Chaba Hits Far Southern Japan November 5, 2010
The eye of Typhoon Chaba can be seen passing to the southeast of Okinawa.
Typhoon Chaba brought high winds, pounding surf and bursts of heavy rainfall as it passed very near Okinawa and other southern islands of Japan.

There were no reports of significant damage, and the storm mainly posed a threat to maritime shipping over the western Pacific.

Metropolitan Tokyo received locally heavy rain as a weakened Chaba passed just to the east as a tropical storm.

The former Category-4 typhoon eventually dissipated over the cooler waters of the northern Pacific Ocean.
