Violent Typhoon Yolanda / Haiyan Nearing Landfall. Thu. Update

Nov 6, 2013
This storm may not get as strong as Utor and Lekima earlier on this season but it will likely be making landfall in Samar and Leyte Friday morning. JMA is now expecting Haiyan to max out with winds up to 314kph and pressure at 900hpa at landfall. Strongest storm of 2013 and at landfall! When Utor and Lekima maxed out they were over open water.

This is why we continue to encourage everyone who is being advised to evacuate to do so and to take this storm seriously.

By this evening any preparations to be made will start to be to late as conditions begin to go down hill across the eastern Philippines when the outer rain bands begin to effect the islands.
