Good Wednesday Morning!

NEW THIS MORNING:

More than one million residents have been forced to evacuate as Typhoon Roke made landfall near central Japan. At least four people are dead and two others are missing after floods and landslides caused by the storm. The typhoon is also affecting air travel between Hawaii and Japan. Ramsay Wharton will have an update on flights.

Two Americans have been released after two years in an Iranian prison. Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer have been held since 2009 after apparently straying into the country while hiking near the border with northern Iraq.

HAPPENING TODAY:

The Hawaii Air National Guard's F-22 Raptors are set to soar in the skies again today for the first time since the entire fleet was grounded in May. Authorities stopped using the jets due to safety concerns, after a dozen pilots reported hypoxia-like symptoms, indicating they may not have been receiving adequate oxygen.
