Winds have died down and will probably stay that way until the storm clears the land into the South China sea where it may reform. Rain is now a steady drizzle, still cool , humidity is climbing as wi

Whelp ...looks like Bill's only way out of this one is to go back in time and use his powers to change events..... 

Lets just cut to the chase and call it hsph , save any further confusion with this speed thing ...the cyclone was doing 180 head shots per hour when it made landfall ....

When they first started tracking this beast the spaghetti models were all over the place...

Today it looks like they have a better handle on it's projected track...

Looks like Saipan is going to take a direct hit from a very strong storm.

Nice Website Woolf! Looks like this storm is heading towards Saipan and Rota. 

Im on Guam right now and there is only a little bit of wind...4-5 mph and no rain

This thing has basically exploded. Will be the biggest storm to date on planet earth in 2018

Boat travel here is off and so are the planes. Huge surf expected here on Siargao come Sunday. 

The Marianas gonna catch it right soon. No idea if there will be a northern Luzon landfall; that remains to be seen.

Already up to 145 knots and down to 908 mb. That my friends is a storm.

Turns out Yutu was the 5th strongest cyclone to make landfall in history. Yolanda still the champion.

Where did the chart come from? First of all, the eye wall on Haiyan hit Leyte, not Samar, and the clocked wind speed was 200 mph steady and 250 mph gusts.

Haiyan's initial landfall was in the small surfing community of Guiuan in Eastern Samar.

The chart clearly refers to wind speed at landfall.

Making landfall is defined as the eye wall hitting land. The second of 5 landfalls was Leyte.

The first landfall happened in Guiuan town of Easter Samar at 4:40 am Friday.
