Phillipines declares "State of Calamity" as it face a Super-Typhoon!!!
MANILA President Gloria Arroyo placed the Philippines under a "state of calamity" on Friday and terrified people fled their homes as a powerful typhoon threatened to unleash more carnage following deadly floods.

After being accused of not preparing her country adequately for last Saturday's storm that killed 293 people in and around Manila, Arroyo also ordered forced evacuations of towns in the direct path of Typhoon Parma.

The government warned Parma would tear down houses in and around Aurora, while likely bringing more heavy rain to the nation's capital, Manila, and nearby areas that were still recovering from Saturday's record floods.

"We're praying very hard that the super typhoon will spare us," said housewife Nita Solita, 42, who was living in a makeshift evacuation centre in Manila after losing her home in the floods.

"I don't know what's happening to our country."

Have taken a look at the Global Composite Weather Satellite Ifrared Satellite image, at [link to www.ghcc.msfc.nasa.gov] , and must say that the typhoon in question is pretty damned big and intense.

Japan next, I'd guess (maybe China?), and then the remnants to the NW Pacific. Where it may well strengthen again and beat the hell out of us here, in the Aleutian Islands.

Aw, nuts! Looks like winter's on its way ....

Having sat through Hurricane Betsy in August 1965, I am not inexperienced in such storms, and all Filipinos sure have my sympathy. This kind of weather is so bad that it's almost beyond description.

Poor folks; hope they can get through this. Lots of Filipinos here at the fish processing plant, and every one of them seems pretty damned decent, at least to me. The Philippines doesn't deserve such treatment, but that's the price for the location.

Too bad, eh?
