Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms in history, hit the Visayas region in the Philippines on Nov. 8, 2013. The storm killed at least 6,300 people in the Philippines alone and caused around $1 billion in damages. Haiyan was also the strongest storm recorded at landfall, and unofficially the strongest typhoon ever recorded in terms of wind speed.

3 areas are now under advisories, watches or severe weather warnings.
