Super Typhoon Haiyan, which is “one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever observed,” hit the Philippines on the morning of November 8. It was 500 miles across, reaching wind speeds of 195mph, with gusts up to 235 mph. The Philippine Red Cross estimates at least 1,200 people were killed by Haiyan, but some reports say that number could be closer to 10,000 when officials make their way to more remote regions of the country. Approximately 9.5 million people have been affected by the storm.
