This site has the best typhoon tracking and imagery that we have found. We seem to be under the eye of the storm right now. All is well so far. We were without internet for a few hours yesterday and we know of some people who were without power for part of the day. You should be able to read in Natalie’s blog about some of our preparations for the typhoon (after a little editing and then we publish it).
I didn’t know there could be much difference in humidity after 100%, but my hair has been even curlier yesterday and today. To me it feels like wool that needs to be carded and spun. But if I have time to be bothered by my hair, things can’t be too bad around here, huh?
Greg ventured out in the eye of the storm and came back with the following pictures:
Greg estimates this bike path was 5 feet under water when he saw it last night from the MRT. The puddle on the left is completely isolated from the river and is full of fish.
Some of the fish in the puddle are pretty big, maybe 12 inches long.
You can see from the debris that the water was up several feet above the path.
He rescued this foot long eel that was trapped on the bike path using a dust pan that he found washed up in the pile of debris. He didn’t want to find out how well their teeth work and he didn’t want to bring it home for breakfast…
Little fishie on the bike path.
Remember, the water was at least 4 feet above the bike path…
The canals and such along the river were full of fish escaping the flood flow.
In this picture, this bridge is about 5 feet above the river.
It was apparently under water yesterday.
See anything you’re missing?
Catching a ride downstream.
More potential breakfast? That is Greg’s shoe, so the snail is about 4-5 inches long.
Its been so cold and damp that we had to turn down the air conditioner… The second half of the storm is coming soon, to us anyway.
