Nawww, that's just a baby..

Tropical Cyclone Yasi that hit Queensland back in 2011 was bigger than that (but just as ugly). Wind gusts up to 180mph and damage estimated at $3.6billion:

..besides, it looks like it's dying out.
When I posted the link, Neoguri was a cat. 4, with winds right up there with Yasi. Looked like it was going to flatten Manila. Luckily, the intensity dropped off quickly from something they call "eyewall replacement".
