Typhoon Neoguri is packing towering waves, storm surges and destructive winds.

Local media reports say one woman was injured and a fisherman is missing after he was swept off a boat.

A Kaneohe resident studying abroad in Okinawa says the weather is getting progressively worse.

“It seems like it’s getting worse right now. I actually don’t have electricity right now. I feel pretty calm, I feel prepared, I feel safe, its not a problem,” Michael Krystoff said.

Officials say Typhoon Neoguri could be one of the strongest to hit Japan in decades.
