It has been compared to Typhoon Bopha in 2012 and Bopha was devastating enough but Haiyan’s features are way “superior” in a bad way: stronger winds, among others.
But one person in the Philippines when interviewed on CNN had a gem of a quip re Haiyan: She’s like a tourist who visits every city. That’s not a verbatim quote, but that’s the gist, more or less.
Enough said. Still, trust a Filipino to inject some humor, albeit not deliberately this time, to a dire situation.
