11/7/2013 — Super Typhoon “HAIYAN” — Category FIVE hits the Philippines (195mph sustained / 235mph gusts)

Landfall of Super Typhoon “HAIYAN” is underway, at a full Category FIVE status.  Literally being called “the strongest tropical storm ever on record”.

Sustained winds at 195mph, gusts up to 235mph !


The storm brought tremendously powerful winds roaring ashore as it made landfall in the province of Eastern Visayas, disrupting communications with a major city in its path.

With sustained winds of 315 kph (195 mph) and gusts as strong as 380 kph (235 mph), Haiyan was probably the strongest tropical cyclone to hit land anywhere in the world in recorded history. It will take further analysis after the storm passes to establish whether it is a record.


Here are two must have links for monitoring this very strong storm:

    • Greetings Robert, While I may be the relative newbie on this aspect, I have been watching, and I can see. I did not see such activity specific to the developmental or steering of this typhoon. I have seen both major censorship in the feeds that would reveal such activity, and it appears that the power levels of these events (The microwave pulses…) is far greater than the registered Weather Modification events we see on land. Here is hoping that this group of researchers has more on this aspect. Some would posit ideas, maybe Dutch has some proof positive? o… Be well… 8th November 2013 – 1:05 AM – EDT
