Super Typhoon Haiyan

While the Western hemisphere wonders what happened to hurricane season, the Eastern hemishpere has had more than its share. One of the most powerful typhoons in recorded history is bearing down on the Philippines.

Typhoon Haiyan, also known as Yolanda, is a category 5 storm with sustained winds of 195 miles per hour, with gusts up to 235 mph. It is expected to reach Leyte in a few hours, with its path crossing near Tacloban and Cebu. Storm surges may be as much as 17 feet, and several inches of rain are expected to cause mudslides. The coastal areas in Haiyan's path are being evacuated. The Washington Post website is updating information as it comes in. -via Digg

There is speculation that the US HAARP station in Alaska is capable of disrupting weather patterns or triggering earthquakes. I understand that it is "adjusting" the ionosphere for use as an antenna to communicate with submerged submarines at ultra low frequencies.

If weaponization of a technology can occur, human history shows that it will be used as a weapon.

I understand the Russians and the Chinese have these HAARP type bases, so things like Katrina, Sandy, the Haitian earthquake and the Japanese and Indonesian/Thai tsunami's could be the unintentional result of such experimentation, or even the result of focused energy intentionally aimed.

Sort of "Hold my beer, watch this..." and then messing with the ionosphere.

Sigh, we've been battered with many destructive tropical storms this year, much more than is usual. I wonder when El Nino starts and the country will have fewer storms (and more droughts!). At least I'm in Luzon, away from the center of the storm. We're only having rain and little wind as of this morning.
