Thank goodness it is dying or dead!! Here in the US we aren't getting much coverage of Bopha. I did see a report this morning that 600+ are dead and 600+ missing with over 400k homeless. Is this correct? That is horrible!! With Bopha progged to head back towards Luzon as of yesterday I pray that it totally disapates before moving back over the Phillipines.

SUBJ/PROGNOSTIC REASONING FOR TYPHOON 26W (BOPHA) WARNING NR 52//
RMKS//
1. FOR METEOROLOGISTS.
2. 6 HOUR SUMMARY AND ANALYSIS.
TYPHOON (TY) 26W (BOPHA), LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 215 NM NORTHWEST
OF MANILA, PHILIPPINES, HAS TRACKED EAST-NORTHEASTWARD AT 08 KNOTS
OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS. ANIMATED INFRARED SATELLITE IMAGERY
INDICATES THAT TY 26W HAS WEAKENED RAPIDLY OVER THE PAST SIX HOURS
WITH THE MAJORITY OF THE DEEP CONVECTION SHEARED EAST OF A PARTIALLY-
EXPOSED LOW-LEVEL CIRCULATION CENTER (LLCC). A 081134Z SSMIS IMAGE
DEPICTS CURVED, SHALLOW BANDING WRAPPING INTO THE LLCC, WHICH IS
POSITIONED JUST WEST OF AN ISOLATED BAND OF DEEP CONVECTION. THERE
IS FAIR CONFIDENCE IN THE INITIAL POSITION BASED ON THE SSMIS IMAGE.
DESPITE THE RAPID WEAKENING TREND, DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY
ESTIMATES REMAIN AT TYPHOON STRENGTH, RANGING FROM 90 TO 102 KNOTS.
THE INITIAL INTENSITY IS ASSESSED AT 85 KNOTS, SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN
THE DVORAK CURRENT INTENSITY ESTIMATES, BASED ON THE WEAK DEEP
CONVECTIVE BANDING. TY 26W HAS MAINTAINED GOOD POLEWARD OUTFLOW;
HOWEVER, THE SYSTEM REMAINS EMBEDDED IN STRONG (30 TO 40 KNOTS)
WESTERLY VERTICAL WIND SHEAR (VWS). TY 26W HAS CONTINUED TO TURN
EASTWARD AS IT TRACKS ALONG THE NORTHWEST PERIPHERY OF THE DEEP
SUBTROPICAL RIDGE (STR).
3. FORECAST REASONING.
A. NO CHANGE TO THE FORECAST PHILOSOPHY SINCE THE PREVIOUS
PROGNOSTIC REASONING MESSAGE; HOWEVER, FORECAST INTENSITY HAS BEEN
DECREASED THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST PERIOD WITH DISSIPATION EXPECTED
BY TAU 96.
B. TY 26W WILL CONTINUE TO TRACK EASTWARD OVER THE NEXT 24 HOURS
UNDER THE STEERING INFLUENCE OF THE STR BUT IS EXPECTED TO WEAKEN
RAPIDLY DUE TO STRONG VWS AND SOME INTERACTION WITH LUZON.
THEREAFTER, AS THE CYCLONE CONTINUES TO WEAKEN, IT IS EXPECTED TO
MOVE EQUATORWARD AND WESTWARD FOLLOWING THE LOW LEVEL FLOW. THE
DYNAMIC AIDS, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WBAR AND GFS, ARE IN GOOD
AGREEMENT WITH THE TRACK FORECAST THROUGH TAU 72. WBAR AND GFS ARE
CONSIDERED HIGHLY UNREALISTIC SINCE THEY BOTH TRACK THE SYSTEM INTO
A ZONE OF HIGH VWS ASSOCIATED WITH STRONG UPPER-LEVEL WESTERLIES AND
A STRONG NORTHEAST SURGE. ANALYSIS OF GFS 850MB VORTICITY FIELDS
SHOWS RAPID WEAKENING OF THE SYSTEM WEST OF LUZON AND A QUICK TURN
SOUTHWARD; THE GFS VORTEX TRACKER APPEARS TO BE ERRONEOUSLY JUMPING
THE CENTER EASTWARD TO ANOTHER VORTICITY MAXIMUM ASSOCIATED WITH A
SHEAR LINE POSITIONED EAST OF LUZON. GIVEN THE SPREAD IN THE MODEL
TRACK GUIDANCE AND HIGH TRACK DEPENDENCE ON THE INTENSITY, FORECAST
CONFIDENCE THROUGH TAU 72 REMAINS LOW.
C. AFTER TAU 72, TY 26W IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE TRACKING
SOUTHWESTWARD UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF LOW-LEVEL NORTHEASTERLY FLOW
AND WEAKEN DUE TO ONGOING VWS AND DRY AIR ENTRAINMENT. THERE IS
CONSIDERABLE UNCERTAINTY IN THE EXTENDED TRACK FORECAST GIVEN THE
EXPECTED LOOPING MOTION AND A SPREAD IN ALONG-TRACK FORECAST SPEEDS
AMONG CONSENSUS MODEL MEMBERS. EXTENDED FORECAST TRACK CONFIDENCE
REMAINS LOW.//

I'm just a newbie here!

Anyway PAGASA announced that the name Pablo will no longer be used the lists of names.

Typhoon Bopha seems to be dissipating now, more like a tropical storm to me! Probably, the name Bopha will also be retired...

Welcome to the storm2k community..
I suggest the name "PONYANG" to replace Pablo, "Ponyang" is the name of our former boarder that really pumped up our water bill. LOL :wink:

The shear is astronomical north of Luzon - over 100 kt I think I saw! If running perpendicular to that, it will be torn to shreds!

I saw those numbers on Yahoo News, also. I have not seen confirmation, but they seem likely. ABS-CBN in Manila has the toll up to 548:

http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/nation/regio ... rte-pagasa

On a personal note, my wife's cousin that we had not heard from did contact another relative - the cousin is ok but (if I have this straight - there's a lot of "extended family" in Mindano) the farm sustained a lot of damage, and a niece of that cousin had her home flooded (not the same woman as the "house is a submarine" I spoke of previously.)

There was actually some coverage on our local TV station last night...

Mindanao was really devastated here, but a Pacquiao win tonight will temporarily ease a little bit of pain away.
