    Impressive satellite imagery, but unfortunately a very destructive storm making landfall in the Philippines right now:

    Winds are currently sustained at 190mph.

    They have been reamed a lot this year. 1st a big earthquake and over 24 storms. The guy who owns Secret Spot Surf Shop on the OBX lives there now.

    If this would've have just skated past the Philippines without a direct hit, boy some of the corners around those islands would've lit up

    That satellite image is scary as hell. Being on the ground there must be unimaginably chaotic. Sh*t flying through the air at 190mph is insanely dangerous. I had sh*t whipping past my head at 85mph last year while trying to save my truck and boat. Luckily I dodged most of it. 190mph!!! What?! There's going to be a lot more flying debris in that situation. A shingle at that speed could probably kill you. If they lose shelter because it blew away and end up totally exposed, what then. Yikes. Scary stuff.
    It's easy to become complacent in our lives and forget how powerful and in control the universe is.
    My heart goes out to the people of the Philippines
