This is probably my biggest fears as of now. I have experienced 2 typhoons already but the worst happened 5 years ago.. That was the worst typhoon I ever experienced and still rings on my mind of that tragic day. Well I can just hope that this typhoon detours, God knows He will always be there on our side.

Stay safe, bruh. I was worried about the wind with some heavy storm the other day, I can't imagine how would I be with a typhoon...

I hope you get through it all alright. I have never experienced typhoons, but I have seen storms which have done some considerable damage. As others have said, stay safe.

CNN's saying if there was a category 6 it'd be under that designation. What's your area like and are you guys pretty safe?

Not to be obnoxious but are you sure God is on your side. After all a 200mph tornado IS coming your way.

Not to be obnoxious... Then posts entirely obnoxious comment at a guy who is in a really bad situation right now? Absolutely and utterly disgraceful.

I sincerely hope the OP and our other Philippine members made it out unscathed.

Meh. I thought it was funny.

 

Obviously I feel bad for the OP and wish him well, but he had a super typhoon headed his way and he said God is on his side.

 

If you're religious and believe in that sort of thing than I can see why you wouldn't find it funny. I believe in God (not much else), but I still think it was pretty funny.

 

That aside, like I said, I hope everything worked out for him.

News channels are reporting that the death toll could reach 10,000. That's huge. Any update from our members in the Philippines?

 

Hope you guys are safe.

There have to be certain non-affected areas, right? Or is the entire Philippines blacked out due to the typhoon? That would suck.

I haven't heard much besides what the death toll is supposed to be. I know someone who I think lives in the Philippines and i'm really hoping that they are alright. I wouldn't know though because I haven't heard from them in the longest time. For all I know they could have died or something since we last talked. I hope they are alright and still well however.

Yeah, I just read that on our news service too. One of the strongest storms ever observed. They are comparing the destruction in the city of Tacloban and other coastal towns to that of the 2004 tsunami which killed more that 200 000. It's bad.

Hope our friend Extremo is safe, but it seems as though Western Visayas was not that badly hit by the storm, am I right?

well yes of course but communications are still sporadic in the early hours of fallout.

this ain't your grandfather's typhoon.

 

this storm was (it's ongoing, but since making landfall) basically the single largest storm ever recorded on planet Earth.

now the planet is over 4 billion years old and we've only been keeping records for roughly 200 years but still... the thing was massive. the Philippines islands were utterly enveloped.

sustained winds over 200 MPH. gusts over 250? insanity.

many of the residential structures in that country are still the equivalent of shanty towns.

I would say that I hope everyone is ok, but everyone is obviously not ok. As was mentioned earlier 10,000 are predicted dead in Tacloban City, which is about 470km from where Extremo said he was from. I hope that is enough distance to make the difference.

Stay safe, man. I've only experienced one hurricane, and it was only tropical storm-force winds. The effects of Sandy last year extended all the way here to Ohio. Let's hope that the Philippines rebuild and heal quickly.

By car yeah, as the crow flies it's little over half of that. The odds are stacked against him, so I damn well hope his God kept him and his family safe.

I just read that another storm, this one being a tropical depression, is rolling in.

It's likely not going to be anywhere near as strong as Haiyan thankfully, but it still isn't going to help the current situation either.
