I sent out the link to two of my co-workers today who are from the Filipeans and they were like, "Average winds of 102km/hour?? That's not a storm.". They are used to cyclones with winds of up to 180km/hour. They'll probably be out playing soccer tomorrow or something, while us Canadians (who can easily handle -45*C with windchill and twenty cm of snow) will be watching from our windows and taking pictures.
Well, it looks like our little town of Toamasina will be spared. The updated cyclone/storm path passes to the west of us. I'm almost dissapointed. I have excitedly been checking this website every half our or so for updates (sorry, it's in French, "cyclone" in French is the same thing as it is in English).
