Super Typhoon Haiyan
November 2013

Super Typhoon Haiyan has affected 10 million people, and caused an unfathomable amount of casualties. Haiyan's November 8 landfall over Samar Island in the Philippines brought sustained wind speeds up to 195 mph, with wind gusts reaching 235 mph. Haiyan sustained super typhoon status (wind speeds 149 mph or greater) for 48 hours. If the Orient Express was today’s TGV that would equal two round trips from Paris to Istanbul - approximately 8,000 miles.
