Typhoon Hagupit is suspected to hit Philippines this Saturday, and will affect about 30 million residents.
The Typhoon which is also known as Ruby in the Philippines intensity was equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic or Eastern Pacific Ocean.
It is on course for the Eastern Samar province and the city of Tacloban which was badly hit by last year’s Typhoon Haiyan, is one of the places which might be hit by this coming typhoon .
Even though Typhoon Hagupit is not as powerful as Haiyan it is still very dangerous as it will cause heavy rain, storm surges and landslides.
In fact BBC News reported that Typhoon Hagupit could bring storm surges up to one storey-high.
Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) made landfall in the eastern Philippines early Friday morning.
With very strong winds up to 380-kph (235-mph) in Leyte province, and storm surge up to 5-meter-tall (16-foot-high), it was feared that at least 10,000 were killed in the city of Tacloban.
Looking at the aerial photos of the devastation caused by the typhoon, it looks as if the island was hit by a great tsunami rather than a typhoon.
