I think we have members over in that area still. Be safe as it sounds like it's going to be a doozy. paranoid

With sustained winds of 315 kph (195 mph) and gusts as strong as 380 kph (235 mph), Haiyan churned across the Western Pacific into the Philippines.

Its wind strength makes it equivalent to an exceptionally strong Category 5 hurricane.

eek  stay safe GTers over there!

I think they're going to need a new category....

Five      157+ mph
Four     130–156 mph
Three   111–129 mph
Two      96–110 mph
One      74–95 mph

I have family over there reporting that the government seems to have done a pretty good job preparing, at least for their areas.  Still pretty damn scary though.
