Compilation: Red Queen Tips: It takes about 8 minutes to read this article. The storm surge brought by Typhoon Haiyan razed the entire city of the Philippines to the ground. Source: orDFID - UK Department for International Development / How powerful is the CC-BY-2.0 typhoon? According to estimates by the US Center for Atmospheric Research, a tropical cyclone can release 200 times more energy in a day than all human generators combined. Of all the typhoons and hurricanes measured in history, the strongest was the 1979 typhoon "Taipei" with a wind speed of about 85 m/s. This speed is equivalent to high-speed rail. If that doesn't give you a concrete impression, in 2013 in the Philippines, Typhoon Haiyan (strength close to Taipei) pushed a 198-ton boulder and rolled 150 feet (about 45 meters). This is the largest natural object that the wind has moved. Typhoon "Haiyan" appeared in 2013. Affects the Philippines, Vietnam, China and other countries. The second strongest known tropical cyclone in the Northwest Pacific. It landed in the Philippines in a near-peak state, setting off huge waves as high as 6 meters, razing many areas to the ground, killing more than 6,000 people and displacing more than one million people.
