I had some auto-post junk go online a few hours ago and I pulled it back offline... As many know, I'm pretty keen on the weather - and something is "goin down" that we really don't see very often.
Super Typhoon Haiyan maxed out a few hours ago as one of the single strongest storms to have ever been recorded on our Planet.
A terrifying and perfectly symmetrical category 5 super-typhoon that as just made its first landfall minutes ago in the Philippines.... There were no aircraft to enter the storm and get accurate measurements (done via Satelite estimates) - however it was published to have SUSTAINED winds of 305kph - (I repeat - SUSTAINED) - with wind gusts pushing 370kph (!!!!!!!!!!)
(That's 190-230mph for you old fogies - or americans - or both)
Then the damn thing had to go and make LANDFALL like this... This should turn out to be a bit of a newsmaker to say the least.... Instead of me rambling - I'd suggest checking out the blog post here -
