After striking the Philippine islands on November 8, Typhoon Haiyan caused catastrophic destruction in the central Philippines, especially on Samar Island and Leyte. The Joint Typhoon Warning Center assessed the storm as a Category 5-equivalent super typhoon, and it registered some of the highest wind speeds ever recorded on land.

The Pacific cyclone is considered to be the second-deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing more 4,000 people and— according to the United Nations—latest estimates put the total number of people affected by the storm at nearly 13 million, including more than 4 million displaced from destroyed or damaged homes and 2.5 million in need of food aid.
