Strong typhoon threatens north Philippines, Japan

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Philippine officials say a strong typhoon is blowing over the Pacific Ocean in the country's northeast and may induce heavy rains, but is too far off to hit land.

Government weather forecaster Glaiza Escullar said Typhoon Neoguri was blowing with sustained winds of 185 kilometers (115 miles) per hour and gusts of 220 kph (136 mph) Sunday about 840 kilometers (522 miles) off Cagayan province.

Escullar said the storm was expected to blow northwest and will be about 500 kilometers (310 miles) northeast of Batanes Province in the country's northern tip Monday. It will then likely blow toward southern Japan.

Alexander Pama, who heads the Philippines' disaster-response agency, advised fishing boats and small vessels not to venture off the eastern coast and urged flood-prone villages to closely monitor weather reports.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
