CATASTROPHE STRIKES INDIA: Apocalyptic Failin
Welcome back haunted October! Hopes for rebuilding life after the extremely devastating Hurricane Sandy hit on October 29, 2012
AN EXTREME AND POTENTIALLY LETHAL CYCLONE... Half the size of India!
The storm could "erase most houses, crops and infrastructure."
Expect over 2 feet of rainfall, extremely powerful winds and flooding coastal waves. How worse could it get when it's already there.
The next 24 hours will be the worst nightmare anyone could ever have.
india has ordered mandatory evacuations for these areas
A lethal super cyclone for India, over 12,000,000 people and over 600 buildings are in immediate danger for catastrophic conditions.
Why so deadly this storm could be?
The worst cyclone to hit india since last millennium, Cyclone Odisha hit this same area Phailin is about to hit back in October 1999 at the maximum category 5 intensity. OVER FIFTEEN THOUSAND PEOPLE DIED
In the Bay of Bengal (BOB), Super Cyclonic storm Sidr hit Bangladesh in November 2007 killin over 10,000 people
Going further... Categiry 4 Cyclone Nargis hit Myanmar with the full strength being able to annihilate everything in it's path and its staggering nearly ONE HUNDRED FORTY THOUSAND PEOPLE.
My prayers to go you India, Bhubaneswar, this could change your history. A 165 mph heads your way and you are beginning to feel the impacts now. It's a very dangerously dumpy road, you will feel the worst possible attack from nature ever.
We are with you, let's pray together!
Cyclone Phailin has evolved to a point of becoming one of the top strongest cyclones ever in the India region. This cyclone is about to re-write history of cyclone impacts on India.
A beast could level widespread areas to nothing as it impacts with the highest fury nature may bring on to against humanity.
FYI "Phailin" means "sapphire" in the Thai language.
I repeat, this cyclone could reach winds of 150-160 mph at landfall.
From Visakhapatnam to Bhubaneswar, ALL RESIDENTS ARE DEMANDED TO FLEE!!!
The highest level of destruction is set for the Indian state of Orisha. Over 41 million people reside in this state and they are right through the forecast path of this history-in-the-making super storm.
Please, flee from what could be life threatening...this could be a life or death situation.
This dangerous cyclone is a 145 mph mid-category 4 hurricane equivalent, a landfall of this intensity is extremely devastating, that's not all, Phailin is expected to further strengthen into a 155 mph category 4 or even a 160 mph extremely powerful category 5.
A list places in major danger
-Bhubaneswar (north edge)
-Brahmapur - greatest
-Parlakimidi - greatest
-Vizakhapatnam (south edge)
Fishermen sort their fishing nets after they return with their catch on the Bay of Bengal coast at Puri, Odisha state, India, on Oct. 10, 2013. Tropical cyclone Phailin is forecast to hit the region by Saturday.
