Powerful Typhoon Approaches Philippines

From the Philstar.

MANILA, Philippines - A powerful typhoon that could intensify into the highest hurricane category is barreling toward the Philippines, international storm trackers reported yesterday.

Megi was last spotted 1,200 kilometers east of Southern Tagalog, heading toward the Philippines at 20 kilometers per hour with maximum sustained winds of 120 kph and gustiness reaching up to 150 kph, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said.

The US Navy Joint Typhoon Warning Center on its website said Megi is forecast to reach Northern Luzon within four days.

Let's hope this doesn't turn into another Ondoy.
