Super Typhoon MEGI to make Philippine landfall with gusts of 350 Kph / 218 Mph
Please pray for the Philippines. This is the most powerful typhoon I have seen to make landfall in a LONG time. Usually the powerful typhoons gain strength over the ocean and lose it by landfall. This one looks to hit at full power.

Thanks, I should be fine here, but this will raze a LARGE portion of the country's food supply. This food is also where a large majority of export quality food is produced.

Many countries will miss the loss of the commodities produced here in the future.

You're off on your wind speed....but holy cripes! Check the sustained wave height! 37 feet!

I read 190 kts?

Super Typhoon is right!



Doom is seriously on, why isn't this super storm on the news?

Sure, but it is most definitely NOT 190 kph. it is going to sustain gusts up to 190 Knots. Convert that to KPH and it's devastating. Tree lifting forces.

Coconuts down, crops destroyed, roads washed away, people homeless and missing/dead, flooding (hopefully it's a fast a 'dry' typhoon), etc.

I can't imagine the damage that is going to result. Seriously.

I couldn't imagine how much wind that was....many moons ago, I spent a lot of time on Puget Sound with my Dad. There, I had to learn knots because marine forecasts are that way. I wasn't thinking through just how large a number that really is:

190 knots translates to 218 miles per hour.

Here's a handy conversion calculator:

Imagine sustained winds of over 200 miles per hour striking the US...........

Thanks for the info, and yeah, these speeds are hard to imagine the damage.

Devastating to say the least, and I don't think this storm will lose much steam over landfall.

I read about it earlier today, and I too think the word used in the news "Super Typhoon" isn't an exageration. I hope you guys will get minimum damage. Stay safe.

I don't know about sustained winds of the numbers quoted above, I said "gusts" without editing. This is according to the US Navy's JTWC.

This looks to me not pissed off at the people in the area, but possibly an unknown, long term effect for the country. This will hit MAJOR farmland for the country and export commodities.

Catastrophic damage is more like it. It will flatten houses, cause most anything to become airborne debris, strip trees and plants of their leaves, take down power lines, you name it.

I forget the scientific scale, but that is basically tornado speeds.

This is where it matters if it's a wet or dry typhoon. Some slow ones, like Ondoy, drop a LOT of rain and cause massive floods. The winds aren't the problem. Others like Xangsane pack a lot of wind that causes a lot of damage, but speed over the country without much rain or flooding.

I hope and pray this one blows by very fast causing minimal rain/flooding and damage.

bump

Super Typhoon Megi continues to intensify (until hitting Luzon later tonight where it will deteriorate to CAT2.) Core pressure at 908mb and winds sustained at 145kt's.

Once crossing the Phillipines it'll continue its Western track, and reintensify back into a CAT5 "Supertyphoon."
