Philippines and Taiwan braces for the arrival of Super Typhoon Nanmadol

August 26, 2011MANILAThe storm has winds of 150 mph, and wind gusts close to 190 mph. It is a monster. According to the latest forecasts, the storm will retain much of its strength after passing over the Philippines enroute to Taiwan. At least 18 provinces in the northeastern Philippines have been placed under a storm alert as typhoon Nanmadol lashes the region. Some sixteen thousand families have been evacuated in the northeastern provinces of Albay and Aurora due to floods and landslides. Sandbags were used to protect communities from overflowing river and dikes breached by another cyclone – Nock Ten – which hit the province last month. Relief supplies have been distributed to evacuees. Schools were closed in the northeast. Officials braced for stormy weather over the weekend due to typhoon Nanmadol which carried peak winds reaching 185 kilometres an hour. –Radio Australia News

    Wow! 150 to 190 mph. That is a monster. Bless their souls. I will be praying for them as well as those in North Carolina and all the other US states about to be hit hard by Irene. Praying. Praying. And more praying. God Bless.

    This is just awful. Another huge storm affecting so many people. Let’s hope it loses its intensity sooner rather than later.
