Super Typhoon Haiyan
direct link to video on youtube
I am taking a time out from writing about the Rim Fire Burned Area Emergency Response to remember all those impacted by Super Typhoon Haiyan that hit the Phillipines early on Nov. 8, 2013. I found the video that I embedded above from this article from NASA - Goddard. Winds around the eye could be as much as 195 mph. Here are some radar images of Haiyan and a link to an animated (gif) satellite image.
Various media outlets are covering the Typhoon, here is a report from NBC News, and a report from the National Geographic.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by Haiyan.
