This is terrible, 

 

Why is Koppu slow-moving? Chris Fawkes, BBC Weather Centre, explains:

There are two typhoons in the west Pacific at the moment - Typhoon Champi sits just to the east of Koppu.

The complex interaction between these two typhoons and the warm air within these storms helps to build a ridge of high pressure over Taiwan this weekend. It is this ridge that effectively traps typhoon Koppu over the Philippines for a number of days rather than it being able to turn away from the Philippines and out of harm's way to the South China Sea.

Some computer models suggest the storm system will still be affecting the Philippines into the middle of next week allowing colossal amounts of rain to accumulate - 1m (39in) of rain is possible. Such extreme rainfall would bring some severe flooding to Luzon.

Sure seems like our brothers and sisters in the Philippines have experienced

a LOT of life-threatening weather conditions, these last couple of years. :( 

They just recover from catastrophe and another one hits them. -_- 

 

I feel stupid complaining about the blowing snow and 24 degree wind-chill factor, :wacko: 

when they are going through so much worse.  Need to complain less and pray more.  :yes:
