2013: Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest storms in history, hits the Visayas region in the Philippines. 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.
