Super Typhoon 'Rai' ['Odette']

Many dead, villages smashed, as Super Typhoon “Rai” [‘Odette’] batters Philippines

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), Rai made landfall at 5:30Z (1:30 p.m. local time) December 16 on Siargao Island in the southeastern Philippines.

Rai was a category 5 storm with 160 mph winds at landfall, but was undergoing an eyewall replacement cycle at the time, and weakened to a category 4 storm with 150 mph 30 minutes after landfall.
Rai went on to record multiple landfalls at category 4 and category 3 strength during the remainder of the day, as it plowed through the southern and central Philippines.
It is too early to know the impact of the typhoon, but damage was undoubtedly severe.

At least four deaths were recorded in the central Philippine province of Negros Occidental on Friday, while three more were reported in the provinces of Surigao del Norte in the east, Bukidnon in the south and Western Visayas in the centre.

Typhoon Rai death toll in Philippines tops 100

The governor of an island province in the central Philippines said Sunday at least 72 people died in the devastation wrought by Typhoon Rai in more than half of the towns that managed to contact him, bringing the death toll in the strongest typhoon to batter the country this year to at least 146.

Gov. Arthur Yap of Bohol province said 10 others were missing and 13 injured, and suggested the fatalities may still considerably increase with only 33 out of 48 mayors able to report back to him due to downed communications. Officials were trying to confirm a sizable number of deaths caused by landslides and extensive flooding elsewhere ...

Re: Super Typhoon 'Rai' ['Odette']

The islands just off of Suiriago are or were beautiful ,it's an area that was known for being in the typhoon zone

The one that hit Samar a few years ago killed thousands ,it was the storm surge that apparently did the worst of the damage
