Haiyan - Possibly largest typhoon ever hits Philippines, 200 mph gusts. Typhoon Haiyan, possible the largest hurricane to ever hit land, with sustained winds of up to 200mph (320kph), is currently striking the Philippines. CNN reports that the wind gusts are bigger than Katrina and Sandy combined. And the storm surge is three to four times that of Hurricane Sandy that flooded New York City and much of the northeast last year. And CNN’s meteorologist says clearly climate change had a role: CNN Anchor: This is just another extraordinarily big storm here, does this have anything to do with climate change? Meteorologist: You know, you can’t blame one storm on climate change, but you just referenced so many. I’ve scoured the Web for the best photos of Typhoon Haiyan, and I think I might have found them. Here is an amazing satellite photo of Haiyan from Eumetsat.

Super-Typhoon Haiyan; Strongest Cyclone Ever To Make Landfall. Find Eric Fisher on Twitter and Facebook Unfortunately, we’ve had our share of natural disasters in the U.S. over the past couple of years. Tonight, it’s the Philippines dealing with what may be an unprecedented storm. According to Dr. Jeff Masters of, Haiyan is the strongest tropical cyclone ever to make landfall on the planet Earth since we’ve been able to keep records. It’s hard to fathom, considering the pressure is lower than Katrina and the winds dwarf what Andrew brought to Florida in 1992. This is also the same area that was struck by a M7.1 earthquake in October, killing more than 100 people, and it is the 5th typhoon to strike the Philippines this year. Below is a collection of some staggering images of this ‘perfect’ tropical cyclone. There are people taking video inside the storm.

Visible satellite view of Super Typhoon Haiyan making landfall in the Philippines early Friday morning local time. 9:45 p.m. update (EST): Haiyan made landfall in the central Philippines earlier this evening (early morning in the Philippines). With estimated maximum sustained winds of 195 mph, it is thought to be the strongest storm to ever make landfall anywhere in the world in modern records.

The storm is now within a few hours of landfall in the central Philippines at peak intensity as among the most powerful storms witnessed anywhere in modern times. Widespread destruction, unfortunately, seems inevitable. Interactive tracking map (click on layers for different information overlays) Quartz’s Holthaus adds this detail: Place in history. 'Stop this climate crisis madness' (Editor’s Note: Philippine Climate Change Commissioner and lead climate negotiator Naderev “Yeb” Saño delivered this address during the opening session of the United Nations climate summit in Warsaw, Poland taking place from November 11 to 22. Saño stressed the urgency to act on climate change as the Philippines and his own family reel from the impact of Super Typhoon Yolanda (international codename Haiyan), the world’s worst typhoon for 2013. Below is the transcript of Saño’s speech based on delivery.) Mr President, I have the honor to speak on behalf of the resilient people of the Republic of the Philippines.

At the onset, allow me to fully associate my delegation with the statement made by the distinguished Ambassador of the Republic of Fiji, on behalf of G77 and China. We likewise join others in congratulating you for your election of COP19. ‘To climate change doubters, visit PH’ The picture in the aftermath is ever slowly coming into clearer focus. ‘We need an emergency climate pathway’ Thank you, Naderev Saño, for your climate change leadership.

Water. Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of strongest storms ever, heads for central Philippines. Super Typhoon Haiyan (CREDIT: NOAA) By Jethro Mullen, (CNN) — Thousands of people in vulnerable areas of the Philippines are being relocated as the strongest storm on the planet so far this year spins toward the country. With sustained winds of 305 kph (190 mph) and gusts as strong as 370 kph (230 mph), Super Typhoon Haiyan was churning across the Western Pacific toward the central Philippines as one of the most intense tropical cyclones ever recorded. Its wind strength makes it equivalent to an exceptionally strong Category 5 hurricane. The storm, known as Yolanda in the Philippines, is expected to still be a super typhoon, with winds in excess of 240 kph (149 mph), when it makes landfall Friday morning in the region of Eastern Visayas.

The storm is so large in diameter that clouds from it are affecting two-thirds of the country. Authorities in the region had moved more than 3,800 people to evacuation centers by late Thursday, Maj. In a speech Thursday, President Benigno S. Super Typhoon Haiyan death toll more than 100. Super Typhoon Haiyan, among the most powerful storms ever recorded, crashed across the central islands of the Philippines Friday, killing more than 100 people and forcing nearly 800,000 people to flee their homes before heading west toward Vietnam. More than 100 others were injured in the city of Tacloban on Leyte Island, Capt. John Andrews, deputy director general of the Civil Aviation Authority, said. Regional military commander Lt.

Gen. Roy Deveraturda said that the casualty figure "probably will increase," after viewing aerial photographs of the widespread devastation caused by the typhoon. Initial reports on Philippine television are that dozens of bodies are visible in public areas in Leyte, one of the hardest hit islands, along with Samar and Bohol. The Philippine television station GMA reported its news team saw 11 bodies, including that of a child, washed ashore Friday and 20 more bodies at a pier in Tacloban hours after the typhoon ripped through the coastal city.

Super Typhoon Haiyan Headed Toward Philippines. A super typhoon expected to slam into the Philippines on Friday appears on track to become the strongest such storm to develop this year, meteorologists warn.

With wind speeds exceeding 190 miles an hour (305 kilometers an hour), super typhoon Haiyan—known as Yolanda in the Philippines—is the equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean. Hurricanes, cyclones, and typhoons are all the same rotating ocean storm phenomenon; scientists just call them different names depending on where they occur. [See "Typhoon, Hurricane, Cyclone: What's the Difference? "] Forecasters predict Haiyan will make landfall on Friday morning in the archipelago's central islands, many of which are still recovering from a 7.2-magnitude earthquake that struck the region last month.

“Our advanced satellite algorithms that estimate intensity are hitting values rarely seen.” Typhoon Season In the northwestern Pacific, typhoons most commonly develop from late June through December.

(NaturalNews) The typhoon devastation of the Philippines is far worse than all of us originally thought due to the fact that the infrastructure is so devastated, virtually all communications are down.

Reports are now surfacing that 10,000 people may be dead from Typhoon Haiyan, and now another typhoon named "Zoraida" is following nearly the same path as the first superstorm. As the photos below show, many regions of the Philippines have been utterly wrecked, almost beyond recognition. According to reports across the web, looting is rampant as people desperately attempt to acquire food and water for survival. Trucks carrying emergency supplies are being raided and ransacked by desperate citizens. The luckier citizens merely have to stand in line for many hours to receive small amounts of food or water. "Public latrines" are being used for basic personal hygiene... and no, they don't have doors or privacy. Welcome to the Age of the Superstorm.

I've lived through some pretty hellish storms. Andrew, Charley, Ivan, Jean, Frances, Floyd and countless tropical storms/depressions. It sucks big time, but lumping Sandy in with this storm that had reported 195mph sustained winds? You can't be serious here. Sandy was a bad storm for a lot of people but it's timing affected that much more than anything else. It also wasn't even a cat 1 storm at landfall, it was big but not really powerful compared to this. Down in Florida we call those "rain makers" and in the Northeast it had about the same effect as a big Nor'Easter after a period of above average precipitation preceding it. However, Sandy was not an anomaly either.

So, if you really want to talk "Super Storm"? Also, New York City was hit by a Category 2 storm directly in back in 1893. Later, they did change course a bit to include that Global Warming could change things, but the fact still remains...these things work on grand cycles that take decades to sort out. Agenda 21.

The reason I say that are many well known peer review academic global warming models that say if the ocean gets warmer then storms get more powerful .
