Around 9:30 p.m. on August 31, a tornado appeared over Oura Bay in Nago.
There were no reported injuries or damages property around the bay.

Yoshiharu Nina who lives in the Teira district, confirmed the occurrence of a tornado. He said the tornado moved from the coast off Camp Schwab to Oura Bay, and disappeared around Sedake.

Nina was surprised to say, “Although I had heard there had been tornadoes over the sea, this was the first time that I actually watched it.”

According to the Okinawa Meteorological Observatory, a rapidly developed cumulonimbus cloud covered the sky over Oura Bay when the tornado appeared over the bay. In August, a tornado also appeared over Shimoji Island.
