                #typhoonYOLANDA UPDATE: Super typhoon Yolanda breaks scientific intensity scale "According to [JTWC] forecast track, Manila is now expected to be impacted by the northeastern quadrant, the strongest side of the storm," NASA said. MANILA - Metro Manila will be directly affected by the passage of super typhoon Yolanda (international name Haiyan) in the Philippines, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) warned Thursday night. Citing the Hawaii-based Joint Typhoon Warning Center (JTWC), NASA said in a report on the typhoon that the metropolis won't be spared by the typhoon, even if it is not on its direct path. "According to [JTWC] forecast track, Manila is now expected to be impacted by the northeastern quadrant, the strongest side of the storm," NASA said. Philippine state weather bureau PAGASA raised storm signal number 2 over Metro Manila Friday morning. via abs-cbnnews.com

                          Wow, scary!! Very glad to hear everyone's staying safe!!

                          PS What's the difference between a typhoon, monsoon, and hurricane? They all have rain and high winds ... are they just created by different weather patterns? Do these happen every year in the Philippines? You ever had hurricane problems down in the Caribbean KA?

                            We get plenty. Around 19 tropical cyclones or storms enter the Philippine Area Of Responsibility in a typical year and of these usually 6 to 9 make landfall. copied from wikipedia

                              They are pretty much the storms but given different names. We in the western hemisphere call it hurricanes and Roslyn in the eastern hemisphere call it typhoon

                              There's atleast one every year but they don't always hit an island or sometimes it goes straight for the USA instead of my island
