Sent a prayer for you and your community! My wife's friend's wife is there now visiting family. Hopefully, she is out of harm's way.

Seeing forecasts of 50'+ surge along with winds over 200mph.

Just Dayum! And here we were hoping to bring a good time to these kids on the island. I hope they are all moving to higher ground.

The sad part is the rich and powerful continue to line their pockets instead of creating an effective defense and recovery from natural disasters. The coming news will, once again, show loss of life and homes due to substandard abilities.

I believe Tim is on Bantayan Island.
From the pictures Tim has posted, he's right on the coast, across from Hilantagan Island.
The eye of that storm is headed straight for his house.
With sustained winds in the eye-wall of 315 mph, I really fear for Tim. If that thing hits there, his house isn't going to make it. I hope he and his family are on the other side of the island on high ground.


Sending Tim and his family and friends lots of prayers.

The maps show we are going to be right in the middle of it..

The only tiny bright side is that it's a fast-moving storm, so flooding from heavy rain — which usually causes the most deaths from typhoons in the Philippines — may not be as bad, Masters said.

"The wind damage should be the most extreme in Phillipines history," he said.
Damn
