Three confirmed dead as Tropical Storm Kai-Tek sweeps across the Philippines.

Three people have been confirmed dead after Tropical Storm Kai-Tek swept across the Philippines on Saturday 16 December 2017. The storm made landfall on Samar Island, where 77 000 people have been evacuated from low lying areas, and seven people are known to have been injured amid widespread flooding. All three confirmed deaths occurred on the neighbouring island of Leyte, and include a woman killed by a landslide, a three-year-old boy who drowned and another person who was sucked down a manhole. Two further deaths have been reported on the islands of Biliran and Dinagat, though authorities have not yet been able to confirm these.

Tropical storms are caused by solar energy heating the air above the oceans, which causes the air to rise leading to an inrush of air. If this happens over a large enough area the inrushing air will start to circulate, as the rotation of the Earth causes the winds closer to the equator to move eastwards compared to those further away (the Coriolis Effect). This leads to tropical storms rotating clockwise in the southern hemisphere and anticlockwise in the northern hemisphere.These storms tend to grow in strength as they move across the ocean and lose it as they pass over land (this is not completely true: many tropical storms peter out without reaching land due to wider atmospheric patterns), since the land tends to absorb solar energy while the sea reflects it.

The low pressure above tropical storms causes water to rise there by ~1 cm for every millibar drop in pressure, leading to a storm surge that can overwhelm low-lying coastal areas, while at the same time the heat leads to high levels of evaporation from the sea - and subsequently high levels of rainfall. This can cause additional flooding on land, as well as landslides, which are are a common problem after severe weather events, as excess pore water pressure can overcome cohesion in soil and sediments, allowing them to flow like liquids. Approximately 90% of all landslides are caused by heavy rainfall.

  1. Assalamualaikum senang sekali saya bisa menulis dan berbagi kepada teman-teman disini, Awal mula saya ikut pesugihan, Karena usaha saya bangkrut dan saya di lilit hutang hingga 900jt membuat saya nekat melakukan pesugihan, hingga suatu waktu saya diberitahukan teman saya yang pernah mengikuti penarikan uang ghaib dengan AKI SOLEH JAFFAR menceritakan sosok AKI SOLEH JAFFAR, saya sudah mantap hati karena kesaksian teman saya, singkat cerita saya mengikuti saran dari pak.aki saya harus memilih penarikan dana ghaib 1 hari cair dengan tumbal hewan dan alhamdulillah keesokan harinya saya di telepon oleh pak aki bahwa ritualnya berhasil dana yang saya minta 3Milyar benar-benar masuk di rekening saya, sampai saat ini saya masih mimpi uang sebanyak itu bukan hanya melunaskan hutang ratusan juta bahkan mampu membangun ekonomi saya yang sebelumnya bangkrut, kini saya mempunyai usaha di jakarta dan surabaya yang lumayan besar, saya sangat bersykur kepada allah dan berterimakasih kepada pak. AKI SOLEH JAFFAR berkat beliau kini saya bangkit lagi dari keterpurukan. Jika ada teman-teman yang sedang mengalami kesulitan masalah ekonomi saya sarankan untuk menghubungi ki sholeh jaffardi 0853-7778-3331 agar di berikan arahan Atau KLIK DISINI

  2. SCAMMERS DRAINED AND RUINED ME FINANCIALLY AND LEFT ME HOMELESS BUT THANKS TO PROSPER LOAN PLC:- prosperloanplc@gmail.com or call +1(205) 224-8709 .

    Greetings to everyone, Life they say is full of deceit. No torture and pain can be compare to what i Theresa L. Bernard experience in the hands of scammers, I trusted the words of those fake loan lenders without verifying, I lost more than $12,500 in the quest of obtaining a loan. I defaulted in my bills but i keep on falling victim my life has been piece of trash full of mess. My kids dropped out of school, My bank denied me credit because my credit score was down already. Until last week a very close friend told me that she got a loan from PROSPER LOAN PLC that i should also give it a try. Not having an option I contacted them with a heart full of sorrow and skepticism i shyly follow their procedures comply to their policy, I was waiting for the bad news like every other loan company i contacted gave me then i receive a credit alert that my bank account has been credited with $250,000 which i initially applied for instantly tears of joy roll out of my eyes because I never believe it will come through. Whenever you are in need of any kind of loan don't be a prey and contact the one true loan company via their information. Email: prosperloanplc@gmail.com or Call +1(205) 224-8709 and receive your financial breakthrough. .....

My name is Emily Thomas and I am from Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, FL . A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about EDWARD JONES FINANCE, that they can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. I have been in a financial mess for the pass 7 months now, She advised I give it a try so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation to him, he therefore took me through the loan process and gave me a loan of $390,000.00 at a very low interest rate of 2% and today I am a proud business owner and can now take good care of my kids, If you must contact any firm to get any amount of loan you need with a low interest rate of 2% and better repayment schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES FINANCE email:- {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com} OR Text +1(307) 217-5388
