Was there this past march, winds were 200mph sustained with gusts reaching 240mph. My wives daughter lives in Cebu City and she let us hear the wind over her cell phone.

I'm from the Philippines and I have friends still there. Breaks my heart to see my country under attack by mother nature. Crying or Very sad

Looks like someone threw one hell of a party.

But seriously, it's unfortunate. It seems like every year we see something like this happening in Asia-Pacific.

It's mind boggling the amount of damage it caused. Those poor people have dealt with storm after storm.

Anyone know how bad Manila got hit? We sponsor a little girl there and we haven't gotten word if she is ok. Tacloban took the brunt of it but I think the storm path went through Manila too. Crying or Very sad

I work with a bunch of people in Manila, and they weren't hit very hard. This one went south of them by about 200 miles.

It is crazy how many massive storms the Philippines gets hit with every year.

Thanks for the update. You live in the Philippines?

Over 1,700 confirmed dead and fear that the death toll will push past 10,000 when all of the bodies are counted. A city about the size of Richmond, VA wiped off the map. Absolutely horrific.

No, but my company has offices in the Manila. I have an order entry guy that I work with in Manila. It seems like every other month there is a huge typhoon that causes floods.

It is going to get worse too. So many homeless, starving people without any access to food, water, shelter or any way to call for help. A lot of people are going to death just in the aftermath.

not to mention long term disease outbreaks in the near future due to poor sanitation and lack of medication distribution.

It's crazy about a month or so ago when I went to Hong Kong the week before that there was supposedly the strongest Typhoon to hit that area in like 30 years. Apparently the storm softened up right before it hit HK, but it still did some damage in the Philippines. This one obviously didn't slow up at all, and two MAJOR typhoons in two months is alarming.
