#typhoonYOLANDA UPDATE: Super typhoon Yolanda breaks scientific intensity scale "According to [JTWC] forecast track, Manila is now expected to be impacted by the northeastern quadrant, the strongest side of the storm," NASA said. MANILA - Metro Manila will be directly affected by the passage of super typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) in the Philippines, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) warned Thursday night. Citing the Hawaii-based Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), NASA said in a report on the typhoon that the metropolis won't be spared by the typhoon, even if it is not on its direct path. "According to [JTWC] forecast track, Manila is now expected to be impacted by the northeastern quadrant, the strongest side of the storm," NASA said. Philippine state weather bureau PAGASA raised storm signal number 2 over Metro Manila Friday morning. via abs-cbnnews.com

Wow, scary!! Very glad to hear everyone's staying safe!!

PS What's the difference between a typhoon, monsoon, and hurricane? They all have rain and high winds ... are they just created by different weather patterns? Do these happen every year in the Philippines? You ever had hurricane problems down in the Caribbean KA?

We get plenty. Around 19 tropical cyclones or storms enter the Philippine Area Of Responsibility in a typical year and of these usually 6 to 9 make landfall. copied from wikipedia

They are pretty much the storms but given different names. We in the western hemisphere call it hurricanes and Roslyn in the eastern hemisphere call it typhoon

There's atleast one every year but they don't always hit an island or sometimes it goes straight for the USA instead of my island

Typhoons and hurricanes are the same thing,just Pacific and Atlantic Ocean respectively is all.

Monsoons are more a rainy season than a specific storm. The most well known monsoon seasons are in India and SE Asia.

Plus,as I'm sure Roslyn and the guys could tell you,the Philippines is a very active part of the Pacific's "Ring of Fire"---the world's hotbed for earthquakes and volcanic activity. Mount Pinatubo's 1991 eruption was one of the world's largest in the last century. Takes some hardy souls to live in the Philippines.

Mount Pinatubo's 1991 eruption gave our house and city quite thick crust of ash. Live very close. Was so young thought it was super cool

TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) — The death toll from one of the strongest storms on record that ravaged the central Philippine city of Tacloban could reach 10,000 people, officials said Sunday after the extent of massive devastation became apparent and horrified survivors spoke of storm surges as high as trees and winds sounding like the roar of a jumbo jet.

Regional police chief Elmer Soria said he was briefed by Leyte provincial Gov. Dominic Petilla late Saturday and told there were about 10,000 deaths in the province, mostly by drowning and from collapsed buildings. The governor's figure was based on reports from village officials in areas where Typhoon Haiyan slammed Friday.


If you have ever prayed, now is good time.
