Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of strongest storms ever, heads for central Philippines

CNN) -- Thousands of people in vulnerable areas of the Philippines are being relocated as one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever observed spins toward the country.

With sustained winds of 315 kph (195 mph) and gusts as strong as 380 kph (235 mph), Super Typhoon Haiyan was churning across the Western Pacific toward the central Philippines.

Its wind strength makes it equivalent to an exceptionally strong Category 5 hurricane.

The storm, known as Yolanda in the Philippines, is expected to still be a super typhoon, with winds in excess of 240 kph (149 mph), when it makes landfall Friday morning in the region of Eastern Visayas.

The storm is so large in diameter that clouds from it are affecting two-thirds of the country.

Looking at some videos, most of the structures are still standing. The structures there are made of concrete. That makes them more survivable than both my houses here in the US. If that typhoon hit my houses here, they'd be flying off to OZ by now.
