8:10 am
their local name was yolanda. they kept track of it by calling it yolanda. they are about 13 hours ahead of us, about 9:00 in the evening there now. so when we talk about their local times, it's about 13 hours away. the storm has made it past the philippines moving in toward vietnam. it has already diminished. so that is what we are looking at now. at its height, winds gusting up to 230 miles per hour. this is a storm diminishing now. this state strong as long as it was out in the open water. it is now down to about 60 to 80 miles per hour moving fast vietnam and moving up into the china region. i said 230 miles per hour, category five storm. this storm was at 310 tight -- three times larger than katrina. with gusts up around 230 miles per hour. sustained around 195. this thing was literally off

8:13 am
