In a couple of hours I'll be able to report what it feels like from the ground. As of right now, it is calm before the storm.

Master replied: “What questions?”
King: “I already asked.”
Master: “I already answered.”
King: “What is THE answer?”
Master: “What is THE question?”
King: “No question.”
Master: “No answer.”

Good god, a couple years ago Super Typhoons were super rare and now they are a annual thing. Be careful.

Stay alive, and of course, let everyone else take the cool videos of the storm surge. Hope nobody dies, but that's extremely unlikely. Also, for tips on how to survive storm surge, contact tsunami survivors, which survived practically the same thing.

Well, I now live here, so there's no way to avoid it anyway. However, I can say that the wind and rain are not as strong as I'd imagine right now, since it went through a giant mountain range on the other side of the island first.

Really? You have no car, horse, money or access to a boat in any way shape or form and your legs are broken, and you lack prosthetics?

You completley and utterly lack the means to even attempt to flee should your house, mansion, hovel, cottage,cave, hallowed out tree/and or other dwelling flood?

I feel bad for you. :(

Actually the safest place during a typhoon is always inside the house. These building code in typhoon rich area has already considered the potential hazard. The buildings here are probably the toughest considering there are annual typhoon, and regular earthquakes, and excellent draining to prevent flood due to annual rain fall exceeding 2500mm. Almost all casualties happened outside.
