Super-Typhoon into Philippines

November 8, 2013
Philippines (AP) - On the other side of the world this morning, one of the most powerful typhoons ever recorded is roaring into the Philippines. Even though there was plenty of warning, weather experts around the world are fearing a massive natural disaster.
    
The 300 mile wide storm is so massive and so powerful, Super-Typhoon Haiyan could become the strongest ever to hit land in recorded history. The winds right now estimated at 195 mph, to give you an idea how strong, Hurricane Katrina was only 175 mph. We're talking gusts right now over 200 miles per hour. Some ten million people in harm's way are struggling to protect themselves.
