Don't worry. The hurricane will only kill the drug dealers in the Philippines.

Typhoon subby.  Hurricane in Atlantic.  Typhoon in Pacific.  Makes it seem more exotic that way.

Can't Duterte just go outside and shoot it?

The way I see it, the Carolina hurricane will kill dozens of people who, for the most part, had every chance in the world to evacuate.  The Philippines storm will kill thousands of people, who had no way to get out of the way, and would have loved to be able to drive inland in order to get them and their families out of danger.

Yeah, the people that elected Duterte are sooooo nice. The typhoon will give them every bit as much due process as they give suspected drug dealers.

It's central pressure right now shows at 27.07 mmHg.

I think Florence bottomed out around 28.5.

They're still nice.  What can you say? Asians have a soft spot for dictators.  And more than a few Americans seem to love it as well.

This is one of those things where, if this country wasn't up to it's eyeballs with its own hurricane problem, the troubles in the Philippines would have made more news.

Even if their storm is bigger and more deadly (and it is), it will not get the same coverage because it's not right here.

Having said that...  I would like to point out that not only is their storm bigger, their ability to deal with a storm like that is WAY lower than ours.  They are in real trouble.  And their death toll will be much higher.

So, sadness.  I feel for them.  And I hope it's not as bad as it seems.

The Philippines gets hit with typhoons regularly...the joke is 12 a year. Its always the same. Storm comes in, creeks overflow, massive flooding and landslides, shantytowns destroyed, the poorest people die, the middle and upper classes ride it out in their concrete and steel reinforced homes and speak of the storm and loss of life as an inconvenience than the disaster it is.
As a mostly Catholic nation, they already have tons of thoughts and prayers. Aint gonna spare any more for them.

/Will be donating to the atheist charity down the road that rebuilds the homes of poor folks in the Philippines
