Typhoon Yolanda Fundraiser at Transit

By Barcham - 14 November 2013 9

Yolanda

A really good looking gig being played for a great cause.

Go be entertained, and help with something really important.

Typhoon Yolanda (known internationally as ‘Haiyan’), the strongest in recorded history, reached the Philippine landmass on the evening of November 7th 2013, at speeds of over 300km/h. Subsequently, significant damage was caused to several areas of the Philippines. Although communication has not been restored in all areas, the greater known damage occurred in the south eastern provinces of Leyte and Samar.

In response to the need for relief assistance and support in the Philippines, Transit Bar, along with supportive Canberra bands and DJs, has organised a fundraising event for Saturday November 16. All proceeds from the door will be donated directly to CARE Australia and its local partner organisations. Perfectly unobtrusive donation buckets will be strategically placed around the bar if you care to donate more. Transit Bar will also match dollar for dollar any donations made on the evening (and, yes, that includes money made at the door).

Confirmed acts include:
MOOCHERS INC
THE WANNINASHVILLES
SEMANTIX
MEDDSKI
ACTIVATE JETPACK
…and more to come.

Entry will be $10 at the door, which open at 8pm. Bands will start from 8pm, and DJs from 11.30pm. Set times will be available as soon as possible – come in and check out some great talent!

Hi All,

Our Philippines Team is undertaking disaster relief in several of the worst effected areas, so some of the proceeds from our photo exhibition on Thursday 21st will be spent directly on those programs.

Woody you sound like a proper twat if you are going to use a quote that uses the words ‘if verified’

Oh, you poor dear. Which part of ‘let’s see, shall we?’ confused you? Was it ‘let’s’? I think that must have been it. They’re all single syllable words of five letters or less, but that one has the apostrophe.

Shall I say it more slowly? Nobody…knows…for…sure…yet…how…strong…it…was.

maxblues said :

and you look doubly stupid when the same reference site you use lists Typhoon Nancy achieving a speed of 345 km/h in 1961.

I love it when somebody accuses me of stupidity when they couldn’t scroll down far enough to read the bit that says:

“A reconnaissance aircraft flying into the typhoon near its peak intensity on September 12 determined Nancy’s one-minute sustained winds to be 185 knots (215 mph; 345 km/h). If these values are reliable, they would be the highest wind speeds ever measured in a tropical cyclone. However, it was later determined that measurements and estimations of wind speeds from the 1940s to 1960s were excessive. Thus, Nancy’s winds may actually be lower than its official best-track value. If Nancy did indeed have 215 mph winds, it would have had the fastest sustained wind speed of any tropical cyclone by 20 mph. Typhoon Tip, Typhoon Grace, Hurricane Allen, Hurricane Camille, Typhoon Vera, and Typhoon Sarah all had winds of 190 mph, the highest verified tropical cyclone windspeed. In addition, Typhoon Haiyan had winds of 195 mph, which, if verified, would be the strongest winds ever recorded in a tropical cyclone.

I now return you to your regular remedial reading program.

What a lot of wind!

The Philippines average 6 to 7 typhoons a year…it is just bad luck when they hit populated areas.

Let’s just agree that it caused a lot of damage and this is a much more fun way of raising money for people who need help than trying to avoid making eye contact with a chugger.

Oh shut up.

Typhoon Yolanda…the strongest in recorded history

Apologies for the pedantry, but it wasn’t the strongest on record, not even for the Philippines.

Good luck for the gig in any case, nice to see bands offering their talent for charity.
