boro whats it like there now? where is your location near?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22111432


I am in Agusan Del Sur. About 60km (as the bird flys) from the coast town of Barobo.

we are surrounded by mountains, so that will help with wind, but flooding is expected.

 Quoting: BoroBoro


yes it will impact your area very severly tonight and well into the morning its also accelerating west so the eye should pass just south of your area

you will be north of the destructive line meaning you could be very isolated in the next few days

the event will continue for a few days too
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21937622


Yes. Thanks again for the info. lol on the isolation. I have been here for 6 years in this tiny farming area, so isolation has become normal life. Luckily we really don't need any outside help. If the roads North and south of us disappeared it would be ok, as we rarely ever use them and don't rely on them for supplies.
The coastal areas are screwed. They tried to evac, but, sadly, I think there will be many lost, mainly cause there's no good emergency broadcast system like the west has. So many will be surprised.

Our prayers go out to all in the path.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21937622


Thanks for the info and support. Being a GLP'r I have been mentally training for this for many years, and of course we will do all we can for our neighbors etc.
Right now I expect to be flooded and to maybe loose the roof, but the house is extra solid concrete.
I am more worried about the shelters the gov is bringing these people too. They are old school and gym buildings and likely will not fare well. Old low cost construction before any real building code.
Plus, where I am, very few have concrete houses. Most are Huts on stilts, with nippa roofs. These will be like toothpicks in high wind.
We hope the close by mountains will offer some relief.

Yes you can easily, and quite well, depending which Island you want to live in. But, you need to have a starting capital to buy house, transportation, and all infrastructure. Then, live like a king for that much.

That's just not right.

This is a unit conversion error. They took miles per hour and incorrectly put kph behind it.


I know they probably use 10min sustained winds, which might actually be right, I don't know, but the gusts are clearly wrong and ridiculous.

A T-7.5/7.6 hurricane typically has gusts of over 200 Miles per hour, not kilometers per hour. In kph that is supposed to be more like 320kph for gusts... [link to www.wunderground.com]

Sorry to say, If they are Dipolog, Mindanao, they are going to be right in the path of the eye. Might only be a Cat 3 by then.

im pretty sure that is where they are at. they arrived there about 6 days ago. my brother was to get married yesterday. but was hospitalized with a gall bladder problem.

now this!!!

i was thinking around cat 3 myself when it hits. i hope they will be ok. we live in florida, so we are hurricane seasoned. but might be a little different over there.
