Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded is currently ravaging the Philippines. Please help out by donating (http://bit.ly/HBMfT4).
One of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded slammed into the Philippines..
Supertyphoon “Yolanda” (international name: Haiyan) downed communication and power lines and blocked roads in the central Philippines, which is still reeling from the devastating impact of a 7.2 magnitude quake in October.
The Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) placed over 50 provinces and towns under storm signals amid worries of serious damage and casualties.
Packing maximum sustained winds of 235 kilometers per hour near the center and gusts of up to 275 kph, a foreign weather expert warned of “catastrophic damage.”
The storm will affect victims of the recent earthquakes in Bohol and Central Visayas.
