The Okinawa Meteorological Observatory announced on June 14 that the rainy season in Okinawa has ended.

The rainy season in the region usually continues until around on June 23, so it has ended nine day earlier than usual.

This year, the Okinawa region’s rainy season started on May 14 and lasted for 31 days, which is the fifth shortest season since data began to be collected in 1951.
