Philippine typhoon evacuation areas
Last Updated: Nov. 10, 2013
One of the worst storms ever recorded has unleashed ferocious winds and giant waves in parts of the Philippines, killing as many as 10,000 people. Typhoon Haiyan hit the eastern seaboard of the Philippine archipelago on Friday and across its central islands before exiting into the South China Sea, packing winds of 235 km/h that gusted to 275 km/h, and a storm surge that caused sea waters to rise six metres.
