Tracking Typhoon Neoguri

Typhoon Neoguri is causing high winds and flooding in the Pacific Ocean.

The storm has weakened to the strength of a Category 3 hurricane, but strong winds are hitting the island of Okinawa.

On "New Day" Tuesday, storm chaser James Reynolds described conditions around the typhoon.

"Earlier today, I saw the biggest wave I've ever seen in my life," he said.

Landfall is expected Thursday morning on the island of Kyushu, corresponding to Wednesday evening in the eastern U.S.

Neoguri is forecasted to hit as a weak typhoon or strong tropical storm.

While winds will make an impact, flooding rain is the biggest threat as the area has been soaked in the past week with up to 11 inches of rain.
