Mina Hits Philippines and Irene Threatens the East Coast

The highest storm signal warning, number 4 has been raised over the northern tip of the Luzon Island Philippines as typhoon Mina hits the country tonight. It has a wind speed of 195 kilometers per hour with gusts of up to more than 200 kilometers per hour. Meteorological instruments show that it will bring heavy rains.

The last time a storm signal number 4 has been raised over the Philippines has been years ago. We can expect devastation from this strong typhoon. I hope people in beach fronts and river banks would be able to evacuate before typhoon Mina hits land tonight.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Irene will hit United States' East Coast tomorrow (North Carolina, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Connecticut, Maryland, and Virginia) after devastating the Bahamas leaving several casualties. The federal government has advised citizens to move to safer grounds to avoid possible flooding and prepare for Hurricane Irene.
