Super typhoon Haiyan closes in on Philippines, among strongest storms ever
I think prayer is all that could be offered at this time. This is scary ****. I would expect there to be deaths.The Joint Typhoon Warning Center has increased its estimate of Haiyan’s maximum sustained winds to 195 mph with gusts to 235 mph. The storm is now within a few hours of landfall in the central Philippines at peak intensity as among the most powerful storms witnessed anywhere in modern times. Widespread destruction, unfortunately, seems inevitable.
