Re: Typhoon Haiyan

Last I heard the Red Cross is estimating about 1,200 people are dead but some areas have not been reached.

I hope all is well and you've been able to secure boat and get to shore for safety of you and crew. Thoughts and prayers are with you... Be strong. Let us know when all danger is past.

Re: Typhoon Haiyan

The death tool now is over 10,000 - so many dead. Such a terrible loss.

235 MPH winds!

Very ugly. At least Haiyan appears to be losing much of its power as it approaches Vietnam and China.
