Typhoon EWINIAR has been losing a balance since last evening, and its intensity has weakened from the peak. It seems that the pin-hole eye is difficult to maintain for the typhoon, and some small change can trigger the imbalance of the typhoon. But it is not always the case that the typhoon will keep weakening. If we refer to past cases, it is also possible that the typhoon will recover after transforming to a big typhoon. It is forecast to draw near to Okinawa, so please pay attention to the latest typhoon information from Japan Meteorological Agency or others.
