Typhoon Yolanda

Typhoon Yolanda, the most powerful storm of the year, hit the Philippines the morning of Friday, Nov 8. We received a message early in the a.m. that the govt of Manila had gone to category 2 and as to our school policy, classes were canceled meaning no students but staff report to work. So no teaching but got lots of work done. Yolanda just left the PAR (Philippine Area of Responsibility - the zone monitored by the Philippine climatologist storm trackers) about 20 minutes ago, Saturday around 2pm.
Manila was unaffected but many other islands were hist hard.

The digital monitors dispersed around the ISM campus tracked the storm.

ISM workers "batten down the hatches" around campus.

Billboards were rolled up all over the city - the remaining bare skeletons made for a weird affect in the urban landscape.
