Bingiza Update

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).

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.
