No Blackout Yet

Amazing. The power is still on at 10:15 a.m. Winds are expected to hit 70-90 mph by noon and intensify until the eye hits around 5:00 p.m. That means the bad weather will continue for most of the night. Lovely. Nothing sucks more than a typhoon at night. Winds are sustained 125 mph right now with gusts to 160 mph. This is a bad typhoon – it’s just like Paka all over again.

Media Blackout

The television is only showing taped programs. That means they brought down the earth station and stowed the dish. The same thing just happened on KPRG, and they went off the air for a few minutes as the tape ran out and the guys were outside bringing down the dish. This is going to be a BIG TYPHOON.
