During taifoon Haiyan things got quite turbulent on Boracay Island. It had been announced in the Boracay weather forecast already days before. The weather report in general you can trust. But with no experience, what a taifoon can be like, people at first were not scared. When it hit Boracay, things looked different. Thousands tried to leave - but the public ferry had already stopped running. Back in 1997 we ( The publishers of this page) witnessed a very strong taifoon. It is scary. Very very scary.
At that time there were still coconuts on the palmtrees and every few minutes a bundle of nuts came pounding down somewhere. Next day beef stakes were offered in all of the restaurants, 'cause the falling nuts had killed some cows.

The wind can blow you into the water and things flying on the open beach can kill you. Sand, that comes flying with lots of pressure, can harm your skin and blinden your eyes.
