Bopha’ may inflict more damage than ‘Sendong’ (Superstorm) Cat 4

Already, it was packing maximum sustained winds of 165 kilometers per hour. “Considering that it’s still far from PAR, it can still grow much stronger,” he said. Sendong, a tropical storm, had sustained winds of only 100 kph but caused heavy loss of life as it dumped heavy rain on the watershed of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan cities, causing landslides and flashfloods in the middle of the night.

“By the time it arrives, it may have become as strong as that,” Servgando said when asked if the typhoon could reach wind strength of 210 kph, which US meteorologists would classify as a “superstorm.” Pagasa has no such category for tropical cyclones.

1. "Sendong left more than 1,200 people dead"

Let's hope Bopha/Pablo has less rain - that seemed to be the killer last year.

2. Another freaking SUPERSTORM. WTF? Republicans better stop lying. Now.

By systematically either lying about climate change, or lacking the courage to face reality, Republicans and their MegaBucks Corporate Propaganda Media Machine, Inc. are setting up a HORRENDOUS FUTURE for themselves and their children and grandchildren onward.

Instead of taking action to try and bring balance to an increasingly wild and dangerous situation, Republicans are throwing tantrums and hissy fits -- backed by corporate megabucks funneled into perception massage by propaganda mindf*ck psychological manipulation -- to do their DAMNDEST to keep anyone from using common sense, recognizing reality, and taking positive action.

Repubbies have degenerated to become anti-life on planet earth. And they wonder why they lost the election. Sheesh.
