Yutu a Super Typhoon

Any volunteers for the Mariana Islands?

by Eric Holdeman / October 25, 2018

Typhoon Yutu is cruising the Pacific Ocean, with the Mariana Islands being its last target. Sustained winds of 179 mph makes this the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane. That type of wind speed also puts it in the same league as an F3 tornado.

Likely only buildings built to what would be an "essential facility" standard will escape unscathed. 

See this story, The Atlantic and Pacific Ocean hurricane season is most powerful on record this year. The link to this one was shared by Claire Rubin.
