Called the Storm of the Century, Super Typhoon Haiyan a.k.a. Yolanda has left an estimated 10 000 dead in the Leyte province of the Philippines. 70% of the area has been ripped up by the sea and 300km/h winds. The storm was the size of the country and affected over 4million people in over 200 cities and towns. Massive homelessness expected.
The town of Tacloban was the worst hit but there is great fear for those out of contact on outlying islands such as Panay. Reuters reported that the manager of the airport estimated the storm surge at 13-feet high, a tsunami in nature, and that is what caused the majority of the deaths.
Before the storm hit, it was already predicted as one of the worst in history:
