The Biggest Storm in the World This Year Is Headed for the Philippines

Do you live in the Philippines? You'd better to close your windows, then.

Quote:
Super typhoon Haiyan, likely the strongest storm to form on the planet this year, is heading toward a Friday morning landfall in the Philippines, posing an extremely serious threat to the central part of the archipelago.

The storm is near its theoretical maximum strength, with sustained winds of 290 kph, and is not expected to weaken significantly, due to very warm water temperatures along its path, reports the Washington Post.

Haiyan, known as Yolanda in the Philippines, is likely to push a storm surge of at least two or three meters along the eastern coast of southern Luzon and Samar islands, and will impact the area that was ravaged by the 7.1 magnitude earthquake in mid-October.

They are still getting over the earthquake and the 800+ aftershocks that went on for a week. Phone lines are so jammed at the moment i can't get a connection.

Re: The Biggest Storm in the World This Year Is Headed for the Philippines

Wtf, i've just been told about something very concerning, it has been predicted 'significant loss and the meteorologist who predicted it is a good one; and all this after they've been struck by an earthquake that claimed the lives of 185 people. I can't believe that mother nature can be so pitiless in some cases.

A 7.2Mw shock at a depth of 12 kilometres would put on its knees any country
I've seen live several aftermaths of earthquakes, wildfires, car crashes, storms, tornadoes and one tsunami (seriouslly) but one country being struck by a storm of this magnitude right after an earthquake of that magnitude is beyond me and i've never heard of anything like that before. You can call it bad luck or donald duck fact is that this is happening to them right now poor people.

Re: The Biggest Storm in the World This Year Is Headed for the Philippines

(CNN) -- Thousands of people in vulnerable areas of the Philippines are being relocated as the strongest storm on the planet so far this year spins toward the country.

Packing sustained winds of 280 kilometers per hour (174 mph) and gusts as strong as 335 kilometers per hour (208 mph), Super Typhoon Haiyan was churning across the Western Pacific on Thursday toward the central Philippines.

Its wind strength makes it equivalent to a category 5 hurricane.

The storm, known as Yolanda in the Philippines, is expected to still be a super typhoon, with winds in excess of 240 kilometers per hour (149 mph), when it makes landfall Friday morning in the region of Eastern Visayas.

The storm is so large in diameter that clouds from it are affecting two-thirds of the country.


Earthquake kills dozens in Philippines Authorities in the region had moved more than 2,500 people to evacuation centers by early Thursday, the official Philippines News Agency reported, citing local police.

Most of those relocated live in Tacloban City, which sits on the coast of the island of Leyte and has a population of more than 200,000.

Earthquake survivors vulnerable

As it moves across heavily populated areas of the central Philippines, Haiyan's high winds and torrential rain are expected to affect millions of people. The storm system had a diameter of about 800 kilometers (500 miles) as of early Thursday afternoon.

The Philippine weather agency, Pagasa, warned more than 30 provinces across the country Thursday to be prepared for possible flash floods and landslides.

Schools in many areas canceled classes, emergency services were put on high alert, and airlines canceled flights.

Some of the most vulnerable people are those living in makeshift shelters on the central Philippine island of Bohol.

Last month, a 7.1-magnitude earthquake hit the island, which lies close to the typhoon's predicted path. The quake killed at least 222 people, injured nearly 1,000 and displaced around 350,000, according to authorities.
