Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

HAGUPIT affecting half the Philippines population of 100M

Typhoon HAGUPIT is battering eastern Philippines, ripping roofs, downing trees and power lines, and inundating coastal areas with a powerful storm surge.

Up to a million people had already fled the coastal communities before the typhoon made its first landfall, leaving the city of Tacloban, destroyed by Typhoon HAIYAN in November 2013, and other communities looking like ghost towns, according to local reports.

HAGUPIT [known locally as RUBY] slammed into Dolores in Eastern Samar province at 9:15 p.m. local time on Saturday, with maximum sustained winds of at least 175 km/h, gusting to more than 210 km/h,  according to PAGASA.

“At 8:00 AM, today [Sunday,] the eye of Typhoon “RUBY” was located based on all available data at 70 km West Northwest of Catbalogan, Samar or 85 km Southeast of Masbate City  (12.0°N, 124.3°E),” reported PAGASA.

The massive typhoon, which has a diameter of about 640km, is expected to impact large portions of the country, affecting half the nation’s population of 100 million.
