You didn't read the hype obviously "super storm", "1000 kilometers wide", "worst for 38years" even the BBC "it will drop three times the annual rainfall of GB on Taiwan in one go"........blah blah. Obviously a slow week for news even at the end of the silly season. This hype was spread world wide. Not even the "worst storm in 2013 in the region".
I thought it was possible using infra red or whatever to actualy see how much water was in a storm system? Nasa stated that we dont have any weather drones so it was impossible to accurately say what exactly was going on up there.
Others, "Usagi the most powerful storm on Earth" then later "Usagi the most powerful storm on Earth for 2013" ha ha ha
USAGI.......... It was like pass the message game it got more ridiculous and dramatic the further the news spread across the globe. For me rather alarming given that when a biggy realy does hit we wont know it at all?

usage rated category 5 by tropical storm risk less than 48 hr before skirting to HK, more importantly, lowest millibar pressure was at 910 which is extremely low, btw, the lowest ever was at 870, this one typhoon tip killed 99, normal average millibar is 1013.
btw, the typhoon Vicente ( rated category 4 by tropical storm risk) was a T10 last year in july and lowest millibar was at 950 millibar
one of the most destructive and deadliest typhoon was 1975 typhoon nina, which measured lowest millibar at 900, killed 300,000 people in china and Taiwan.

Koen and CC are not thick, they are just playing this silly Geo game of trying to push the argument again and again and again.
when one post, the other one support his post and vice versa.
Kids do that all the time. Don't get fooled and move on people. I've seen it times and again on these boards...used to be Thebrit and DG, now apparently we have Koen and CC.
Imparanoic is English your first language? Those paragraphs are a mangled mess. What do they mean? English isn't my first language either so Im only politely asking here. (:
I wouldn't trust wikipedia, only for dates that are very easily cross referenced the rest is also a mangled mess. I know I worked on a few entries, politics ,agendas every kind of nonsense often clouds the truth. You can't always tell.
As far as the storm is concerned I was here, it was close enough to Hong Kong to (according to the hype) completely shred us but nothing nothing at all.

No need to be touchy, as I said Im not judging you just trying to read your sentences (:
Ah it's turned into a brilliant day pity you are working. I've taken a week or two off thought it would rain non stop because of the 1000kilometer radius typhoon, but even the rain vanished in the blink of an eye YIPEEE!
