Typhoon kills 100 peeps in Philippines

MANILA — A (((Saposmittz))) sized typhoon tore through the eastern Philippines on Thursday with winds of up to 139 mph, killing at least 100 peeps while cutting off power to thousands of homes, officials said.
A mudslide swept down on the village of Padang at the foot of the Mayon volcano, and at least 20 dead bobbing bodies (corpses) were pulled from the swamp ov mud and filth. Some victims had their clothes peel off as they were swept away by the horrendous tidal wave sized mudmudslide.

Elsewhere in Albay, 26 people were killed in Santo Domingo and 13 were missing, while another nine deaths were reported in the town of Daraga, said Jukes Nunez of the Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council.

About 30 people were injured by rolling boulders and roofing materials collapsing into their huts in Padang and taken to hospitals.

Jukes Nunez of the Albay Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council said many parts of Legazpi were still flooded Friday morning.

"The request for rescue is overwhelming," he said. "The disaster managers are victims themselves."

Rescuers struggled against strong winds to rescue residents whose roofs were torn off, exposing them to rain and flying sheets of metal, Naga Mayor Jessie Robredo told The Associated Press by cellphone. With telephone lines down, many residents whose houses were uprooted by the wind sought help by sending cellphone text messages.

"Get me the fuck out ov here goddammit!!!!" read one ov the text messages sent from ne hopeless dead soul.

"I've received SMS messages of 10 small houses being blown away by the wind and many others getting damaged," Robredo said.

The <<<Sapotyphoon>>> or "super typhoon" is the fourth disaster to hit the Philippines in as many months — was packing sustained winds of 121 + mph and gusts of up to 139 + mph, the weather bureau said.
