Americans are beyond paranoid. Just below 200mph and they go crazy. I mean just look at the typhoons which western medias probably do not cover. They are even stronger.





This was like a month ago

Come on, we all know that anywhere outside of the U.S doesn't mean much to the average American.

Typhoons? They don't have them there, so really not interested.

Did you know? Typhoons are actually Hurricanes with a different name.

And yet we shame pretty much the rest of y'all when it comes to showing up and helping our neighbors.

Having said that, a bit more of a worldview wouldn't hurt us none.

Yes, Typhoon in certain Pacific regions, hurricanes in Atlantic regions, cyclones in other Pacific regions.

I'm from the U.K, so I know such things.

If your home is made of wood and the roof gets blown off, then everything becomes soaked wet and becomes a write off. Same with a storm surge. If your home gets flooded with even a couple of inches of muddy water, those carpets and walls are a write-off due to mold hazard. If the freeways gets flooded, no-one can go in or out, no food deliveries, no gas for the pumps.

Only if there are natural resources to be had eh?

The damage estimates for Irma are already estimated to be north of $100 Billion. It will likely be far more.

Compare with costliest typhoons: Costliest Pacific typhoons.




Mireille 1991 $17.6 billion
Songda 2004 $11.4 billion
Fitow 2013 $10.7 billion
Prapiroon 2000 $8.36 billion
Herb 1996 $7.64 billion
Flo 1990 $7.33 billion
Rammasun2014 $7.21 billion
Morakot 2009 $6.92 billion
Maemi 2003 $6.25 billion
Rusa 2002 $5.59 billion


Not even close.

You mean that American news outlets put more coverage time on storms hitting America than they put on storms thousands of miles away?

Who da thunk it?

Typhoon Meranti:

Winds: 10-minute sustained: 220 km/h (140 mph) 1-minute sustained: 315 km/h (195 mph)
Low Pressure: 890 hPa (mbar); 26.28 inHg
Dead: 30
Source: Wikipedia.

Versus Irma's, Cat 5, sustained winds of 185 mph. Not for one minute but for 24 hours. 914 mbar low pressure (Katrina was 902. source). With something like 23 dead and Irma hasn't even hit the US mainland.

If it was nothing, why are people fleeing Florida? MSM hype? I would bet on a more base explanation: fear.

That's 227 Kilometers Per Hour = 141 MPH.

Meh.

The first vid has shots of 3 different people trying to sweep away flood waters with a broom. Like, what's the point, man?

Pretty sure Bangladesh TV didn't cover Harvey or Irma, people have a tendency to give chit about what happens in their backyard. Don't worry as somebody has already mentioned America always opens up its wallet and resources when places around the world are hit with natural disasters.

Not to mention why do you care ? seems like a lot of the rest of the world thinks Americans are stupid and blame America for every issue real or imagined and lots of time without any tangible evidence. Even your attitude is paranoid americans don't know about typhoons or cyclones. Sure the US government screws up and does some questionable stuff, yet when the rest of the free world get their tits in a wringer,who do they call first?

It's not Americans at fault, per se, but the American media.

THEY. ARE. MANIPULATIVE. LYING. SCUM.

US media is the same. The more people have, the more people seem to gather to watch it destroyed.

140 Mph, accompanied with a 20 foot storm surge, could still kill allot of people if they don't evacuate, and do allot of damage. This one will be in the billions easily, I am afraid. Funny on KTLA they are talking about Typhoons as I read this. How they are formed, and the fact they travel clockwise as apposed to counterclockwise like Hurricanes do, because of the type of pressure and where they are formed...


I guess that blows your theory Americans don't cover and talk about typhoons......Just saying.
