Super typhoon Haiyan. Infrared satellite images of super typhoon Haiyan over the Philippines on 7th (left) and 8th (right) November 2013. Bright purple areas show where the rain is heaviest. The Category 5 storm, with wind speeds up to 314 kilometres per hour, may be the strongest tropical cyclone ever to make landfall. It devastated large areas of the Philippines, particularly Samar Island and Leyte, affecting 9 million people. Over 3,500 people were killed and more than 12,000 injured.
