    Super typhoon Haiyan closes in on Philippines, among strongest storms ever

    Super typhoon Haiyan closes in on Philippines, among strongest storms ever

    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.
    I think prayer is all that could be offered at this time. This is scary ****. I would expect there to be deaths.

    Probably the understatement of the year. There will be a lot of deaths if it comes ashore with that kind of surface windspeeds.

    Hmm that doesn't sound good I'd better look at the satellite piOHHOLY**** LOOK AT THAT THING.

    That is a monstrous storm. Going to do a lot of harm

    195mph sustained? How many buildings in the Phillipines can withstand that?
