count yourself lucky that you don't have this to contend with.It's difficult to imagine the terror that a storm of this magnitude must cause as it bears down on your village/town/city.

The storm has made landfall, with winds in excess of 200 kph. It is predicted to maintain that level of ferocity for at least six hours.

I was on the first relief aircraft into Belize after a hurricane in 1961.

Pretty scary to see the devastation.

6,000 or so dead - the smell of putrefaction permeated the aircraft from fifty miles off shore (unpressurised, open to atmosphere, flying at 1,000 ft).
