Geoff Mackley, the film maker from New Zealand was literally chasing Typhoon Durian in Naga City. He actually has pictures from his site: www.rambocam.com on the experience of an actual Category 5 typhoon hit. According to this veteran calamity chaser, this is one of the Strongest typhoon he has ever experience. This reminds me of the movie, Twister 🙂 about hurricanes and storm chasers. (I forgot what is the name of the movie featuring helen hunt). Typhoon Milenyo is just category 3 and I just wish and pray that we won’t experience a Category 5 direct hit in our lifetime.
BTW, I had our office buildings, 6750 and Petron Megaplaza checked as to the pressure rating of the windows of the building. As usual, 6750 passed our design standards but unfortunately, the Petron building used inferior windows that could crack if a Category 5 typhoon hits Manila directly. You should have your buildings check to and it may mean the difference between life and death.
