The whole planet is watching on CNN, BBC, every major channel, the passage of the fastest typhoon in history, leaving jet streams behind and the world will see how our government handles an unimaginable catastrophe, already CNN has admitted that our government has done all that a government can do. If loss of life is minimal and post-passage relief is quick and vast, this is the legacy that has eluded PNoy, two years before he leaves.
We cannot choose the time and place when we are vindicated but this looks like it for him.
Great job so far.

That is a combination of images from Japanese and European weather satellites, also on Nov. 7, 2013, at 13:00 UTC, around local midnight. These satellites are in geostationary orbits, 36,000 km (22,000 miles) above the Earth’s surface, and provide a much broader view. You can see Haiyan to the right, the city lights of the Philippines almost underneath it. Lights from China, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and India are to the west, and Australia is far to the south. The brassy glow on the left is sunset over the Arabian Sea and the east coast of Africa, Oman, and Yemen.
