Let's Do The News! (December 3, 2014)

Welcome back. Here is your current sitrep:

- IT'S YOLANDA PART TWO, HUH? Weather officials reported there is an incoming typhoon approaching in the same region that was devastated by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) last year. Called Typhoon Ruby (Hagupit), it would have further intensified with sustained winds up to 175kph, causing heavy rainfall and storm surges. Note that winds above 220kph is considered a supertyphoon but at that rate, looks like we have Yolanda Part Two in our hands in the Philippines and this...Typhoon Ruby could repeat the Yolanda tragedy last year.

- Earlier, there was a South Korean fishing vessel, called the Oryong 501 sank in the Bering Sea off the coast of Russia's far eastern Chukotka region due to bad weather and over 50 people remain missing. Officials in Seoul said there were eight people pulled from the water; a Russian official, a South Korean crew member, three Filipinos and three Indonesians. A South Korean who is one of them is frozen to death.
