Marking the four-year anniversary of Typhoon Haiyan's landfall

By  | 

WTVY - Four years ago today, a record-setting typhoon made landfall in Asia.

That storm was named Haiyan and packed sustained winds of 195 miles per hour at its strongest point.

That set the record at the time for the strongest tropical cyclone by wind speed until Patricia.

Haiyan was a deadly storm, claiming over 6,000 lives in places like The Phillipines, South China, and Vietnam.

It also caused an estimated $2.8 billion of damage due to flooding rains, strong winds, storm surge, and spin-up tornadoes, four years ago today.
