Out of the Blue

The reports of the impact of Typhoon Haiyan on the Philippines are startling, but not that surprising when the scope of the storm is described as being hundreds of miles across carrying sustained winds of 147mph, gusts of 170 mph, and waves as high as 45ft. It seems almost impossible to imagine such forces at work until you see the photos and see the devastation. Here's hoping as much help can come to the victims of this as quickly as possible, as food and water are immediate issues, and one can also only hope that the dire projections of loss of life from this turn out to be overestimated.

possibly the strongest storm in history. i was being my usual disinterested self when the local weather bunny (evelyn taft yuuuuummmy!) reported sustained winds of 195mph and gusts of 235! but that was before it made landfall. eyepopping numbers.

Here's a link to donate to the storm victims in the Philippines if your so inclined via the red cross. Thoughts go out to those people!
