Typhoon Haiyan is the most powerful tropical cyclone ever to make landfall.
And it doesn’t stop there. Here’s just a glimpse of what the Philippines are enduring with the tragedy of Haiyan:
Typhoon Haiyan surged through the Philippines at 370 miles wide. That’s about half the width of Texas.
Waters flooded as high as 17 feet in the storm surge. For the large city of Tacloban, this meant major destruction.
The Philippine government has reported a total of 3,637 deaths as of Saturday, November 16, 2013.
12,501 million people have been injured by the storm.
The government also reported that 9.8 million people have been affected by Haiyan.
