Terrible news about the typhoon in the Philippines prompts a search on StoryVault - which turns up an amazing story from John Baxter.  John was a prisoner of war in 1942 and was being transported from Java to mainland Japan when the convoy came under attack.  His vessel steered directly into the typhoon area, and he describes how the ship he was aboard was nearly upright in the water!  An extraordinary story told with typical modesty and understatement.  Look it up.
