Typhoon Trami is the equivalent of Category 2 hurricane. It passed over the Ryukyu Islands on Friday evening after taking a slow right-hand track and heading north out of the Pacific Ocean durning last week.

The Ryukyu Islands stretch north of Taiwan to the Japanese island of Kyushu, and includes Okinawa, the largest island in the chain.

Here’s the main things to know about Typhoon Trami…
