SHADES OF JOHN BARNES' MOTHER OF STORMS: A Pacific Category V "Super Typhoon" threatens to scrub Wake Island clean:
Classified as a Category 5 "super typhoon," Ioke is expected to extensively damage the U.S. territory when it hits Wednesday with 155-mph winds, said Jeff Powell, lead forecaster for the National Weather Service in Honolulu.
"This is going to roll up a storm surge that will probably submerge the island and destroy everything that's not made of concrete," Powell said.
Ouch. Glad I'm missing it. (Via Brendan Loy).
