In a previous blog post I shared the ministry of my parents to the people of the Philippines. Tonight we are praying for our filipino friends as they are about to face the strongest typhoon of the year. Join us praying for them.
The world’s strongest typhoon of the year slammed into the Philippines early Friday. It had been poised to be the strongest tropical cyclone ever recorded at landfall, a weather expert said.
“There will be catastrophic damage,” said Jeff Masters, a former hurricane meteorologist who is meteorology director at the private firm Weather Underground.
The U.S. Navy’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center in Hawaii shortly before landfall said Typhoon Haiyan’s maximum sustained winds were 195 mph, with gusts up to 235 mph.
“195-mile-per-hour winds, there aren’t too many buildings constructed that can withstand that kind of wind,” Masters said. – Fox News
Hike by faith our friends. We’re praying for your safety.
