 Typhoon Haiyan(台风海燕)

Super typhoon Haiyan, known as Typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, is believed to be the strongest recorded tropical cyclone ever to make landfall and the fourth strongest tropical cyclone in history, with wind speeds (at landfall) of 195 mph (314 km/h).

Formed on Nov. 3, 2013 and dissipated on the 11th, Haiyan originated from a low pressure area several hundreds of kilometers east-southeast of Pohnpei in the Federated States of Micronesia on November 2, 2013. With Haiyan moving northwestward, Vietnam and south China were also affected. It killed 11,801 and damages worth of US$686 million (2013 USD).
