Super Typhoon Haiyan Just Broke All Scientific Intensity Scales, 500 Miles Wide, 236 MPH Winds (Live Stream)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Writing for Quartz, meteorologist Eric Holthaus says that the super typhoon Haiyan about to hit the Philippines is the worst storm he has ever seen. With sustained winds of 190mph (305km/h) and staggering gusts of 230mph (370km/h), its “intensity has actually ticked slightly above the maximum to 8.1 on an 8.0 scale.” Update: It broke 235mph.
Holthaus says that Yolanda—its Filipino name—beats “Wilma (2005) in intensity by 5mph—that was the strongest storm ever in the Atlantic,” which makes it a member of the select club of Worst Storms Ever in the Planet. Only three other storms since 1969 have reached this intensity.

        Great Post so packed with information, thanks so much, very intense storm. Prey for those that lost so much and now have no home.

        In the words of the immortal saiyen prince….you are a clown.

      This is a sign of things to come, why are we seeing so many typhoons , is it that the pacific ocean has heated , due to radiation. Or is it some other environmental issue?

      • Ghost

        Probably that ring of fire thing.. it’s been active too..

      • stompk

        As the weather modification chemicals accumulate, the weather swings will get wilder and wilder.

      • Anonymous

        So many? This is the fourth of the year, and this area averages six to eight.

      • Kolta

        Every so called natural disaster in the past 30 years has been man made. Fact. The satan controlled zionist and their able bodied stooges have control of the planet right now. They are hiding or destroying information about the past in order to produce the future.

        • ManWithThePlan

          Quick! We must warn teh proper authorities! We CANNOT allow this to happenz!

          “They are hiding or destroying information about the past in order to produce the future”

          Is that called recycling?

      • Freeamerican

        Not environmental issue, an issue of killers in control. The jews and lackeys in government and around the world are using elf/haarp and chemtrail attacks to keep their jew media blubbering about these attacks as if it’s j ‘warming’ bunk, so soon they can tell you they’ll be dousing you with (more) chemtrails to stop what they are causing. Look at the sheople there. They have the internet, they are ignoring chemtrails, everyone in the world is. So are most people here. All the super storms here for ten years have been by the scums and their elf/haarp attacks. Who’s behind that and everything else, plus search holohoax so you get that fraud straight. People get what they deserve for being ignorant.

    • MrAnthony

      What a ridiculous exaggeration in the headline! While this is a powerful storm, it fits easily into the existing scientific category of hurricanes as a Category 5 hurricane. I should also point out that measuring hurricane strength is a relatively young endeavor, as it was impossible to measure size before the satellite era or get many accurate measurements before modern instrumentation and hurricane hunter flights. I just hate the sensationalist tone of these stories, because it’s no better than reading a supermarket rag. I remember storms wiping out Bangladesh, killing hundreds of thousands–but who was around to measure their wind speeds?

      • ecclesiatical

        Why don’t you tell that (ridiculous exaggeration)to the 15000 dead.

    • Ithamar

      Little wonder that so many of these litter buggers are killed in these storms. They don’t seem to have enough sense to stay out of the water in the midst of it all.


      It’s a pity this thing did not make a turn in the USA.

    • Wonkadelica

      Too little, too late, but at least it’s a start.

      Just ignore the Tea Tard’s temper tantrums! :lol: :cool: :mrgreen:

    • Kolta

      Can you say; Zionist controlled HAARP weather weapon technology? First the chemtrails then haarp stations blasting microwaves with several corresponding satellites performing the dirty deed.

      A message from the people of earth. All involved in the manufacturing of this weapon classified as a typhoon in the name of agenda 21 and zion need to kill yourself A.S.A.P. Please kill yourself now, don’t think about it, just do it, right now as you’re reading this. :lol:

      • Ghost

        “Can you say; Zionist controlled HAARP weather weapon technology?”

        I can say I’ve met the inventor, who was from Spring Texas until he passed away a couple years ago.. Dr. Bernard Eastland — He wasn’t Jewish.

        The Eastlund-ARCO Patent outlines Eastlund’s vision for a HAARP-like project drawing upon the inspiration of Nikola Tesla.

        All this boogey man stuff is simply crap… however, Dr. Eastlund left the project because he didn’t like the direction the army was taking it..

        I know too, they are using it to try and close the ozone hole over or near Australia. That hole was not from spray cans and fluorocarbons… but was created by the Navy in an experiment gone wrong.

        • Freeamerican

          Easland was not a jew however elf and haarp are now controlled by jews, like the banks, media and everything else, and they killed tesla. There is not ‘boogey man stuff’, you purposely mixed in bunk about Eastland to distract from the jews who are in control. The wireless grid and elf towers along every road which haarp is a part of is a system used for mass destruction, period. Your fake insider bunk is showing again, you also claimed you ‘published’ Henry Ford’s the International Jew, which was actually published in the 1920′s. Your answer is obvious bunk trolling. jew lists or and if people haven’t done it yet look up holohoax so you’re clear the jews are not your buddy but took over American starting with lincoln and finshed when they got the federal reserve in 1913, did the depression then their holohoax. Mixing up subjects doesn’t change anything, ghost. the jews (zionists as koltra names them) and their scum government lackeys here and around the world are responsible for this and other mass disaster, so are ingorant sheople who ignore it.

        • Ghost

          You have a curious handle Freeamerican for someone so bound up and enslaved by some hatred of people Jew and nonJew alike..

          I was commenting to Kolta a mere tidbit of information related to HAARP that I had, which is unique and not well known.

          and you fly in here with all these anti-semitic accusations – Why are you trolling the comments that mention the word Jew?

          You work for Westboro Baptist? YES you must be their troll…

          Since you obviously have no clue about the publishing industry, then you really should not show your ignorance in public.

          Have a good day trolling all the comments with the word jew or zion in them.. so you can spam troll with your vile bile..

        • Freeamerican

          ghost, Your comment’s proof you’re part of the recent troll swarm to cover for the jew and keep sheople in a herd. The jews have control, scums in government turned over America to the jews a hundred fifty years ago, putting in the fraud lincoln and every president since, giving the jews the federal reserve in 1913 who then did the depression and holohoax. search of holohoax and judea declares war on Germany and other reading sets that straight. Their schemes thanks to government lackeys put the last hammer to America with their 911 Your blubbering is the same old fake persecuted jew act you’ve done for centuries to cover up. It’s not ‘anti semitic’ to expose religious people for usury or lying or killing. Not all are racial jews. Those who are racial and responsible for this attack and others, the giant debt (by allowance of fraud politicians) cannot hide behind a race card. The ‘racism’ blubbering act has been a scheme to break whites, jew media and bunk jew groups like adl for decades shoved the ‘bad white man’ lies at white American’s to blame us for what jews did -it was jews who brought the slaves, not whites. Pounding on whites was/is so jews and republican scum lackeys could swarm America with immigrant leeches for communism and whites would ignorantly let it happen. They ginned up that ‘hate speech’ bull so if/when it’s outed that jews are behind the schemes -as they’ve been for thousands of years, you cover up agents could blubbering racism to cover up. You can’t hide crimes behind ‘racism’ blubbering. Jews are in control, the holohoax was a lie so is everything else. You lie like dogs when it suits you, you were not the publisher for Ford, beside the fact his The International Jew is open source now. Stuff your bull back where it came from. Mass numbers of Americans have been ignorant, if people don’t open their eyes there will be no stopping them. People in the philipines and America and everywhere better wake up to elf/haarp and chemtrails, the banking and fakery war schemes who’s running it all, the jews and every scum in every government, media and globalist company. Quit voting.

      God is mocking tbe Tea Tard’s contempt for science by killing hundreds of Philipinos. Florida and the Gulf Coast will be next. :mad: :cry: :mrgreen:

      Did I just hear some NZ Moron say that HAARP has shut down?
      Too many shill’s on this Bin.

    • Crazy Wolf Radio

      .Typhoon Haiyan is far from being the strongest. Typhoon Tip was a lot stronger and bigger in 1979.That was back when all the Sheeptards were claiming global cooling would bring about an ice age by 2000.

    • Neil Armstrong

      How would you like being stuck in an F-4 tornado for 72+ hours, that’s what the people in the heart of this storm face. Plus the fact that it probably also drops numerous tornado’s as it churns along. I stuck it out in the worst of hurricane Wilma in the Yucatan 2005, that wasn’t fun and that doesn’t hold a candle to this one. Hope this one stays the Fukuway-from-shima.
