Typhoon Watch: Haiyan (Yolanda) now Category 3 with winds over 200 kph

5 Nov

A pin-sized eye has emerged from Typhoon Haiyan causing it to further strengthen into almost Super Typhoon levels.  The soon to be Super Typhoon was tracked at the Palau-Yap Islands area  with Maximum Sustained winds of 205 kph near the center. Haiyan which will be known in the Philippines as Yolanda is moving 35 kph West Northwest.   The typhoon poses a serious threat to the eastern part of the country.  Residents of coastal areas of Eastern Luzon down to Eastern Mindanao are advised to take necessary precautions and prepare for Yolanda.  Haiyan has a similar strength of the devastating Typhoon Mike known as Typhoon Ruping in the Philippines, that brought catastrophic damage in Cebu and the nearby islands. Residents of the possible affected areas are advised not to take this incoming storm lightly.

3 Day updated forecast*:

Thursday Morning: Haiyan will enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility as a Category 4 howler with winds over 250 kph.

Friday Morning: It becomes a Super Typhoon as its approaches Eastern Samar.  It will have 260 kph winds.

Saturday Morning: It will waeken into a Category 4 as it passes through the northern part of the Visayas.

*forecasts will be updated at least twice a day to give more accurate warnings.
