The typhoon is currently crossing the Leyte Island.  It is expected to pass through Northern Cebu then Panay (Ilo-ilo, Aklan, Capiz), Romblon, Semirara Island, Southern Mindoro, then Busuanga. Yolanda (Haiyan) is expected to be out of the Philippine Area of Responsibility by Saturday afternoon.

From US Navy

It is already raining hard in Cebu and you can feel the winds already.  Everyone in the areas with Storm Signals are advised to be on alert for possible flashfloods, landslides, and destruction of property. Super Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda is strongest typhoon since Typhoon Tip (Warling) in 1979.   Based on Typhoon2000.ph analysis, Yolanda packs winds up to 315 kph near the center although PAGASA’s analysis have it at 245 kph with gustiness up to 275 kph.  Nevertheless, those winds speeds are unheard of by this current generation as there was no typhoon in recent memory with those wind speeds and making landfall somewhere in the country.

Stay safe, everyone!
