Typhoon Haiyan (kent in the Philippines as Typhoon Yolanda) is unofficially the strongest recorded tropical cyclone to make landfaw, wi wind speeds up to 315 km/h (195 mph). The thirteent named storm of the 2013 Paceefic typhoon saison, Haiyan originated from an aurie o law pressur several hundred kilometers east-southeast of Pohnpei in the Federated States o Micronesie on November 2. Tracking generally wastward, environmental conditions favored tropical cyclogenesis an the seestem developed intae a tropical depression the follaein day. After becoming a tropical storm an attainin the name Haiyan at 0000 UTC on November 4, the seestem began a period o rapid intensification that broucht it tae typhoon intensity bi 1800 UTC on November 5. Bi November 6, the Joint Typhoon Wairnin Center (JTWC) assessed the seestem as a Category 5-equivalent super typhoon on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale; the storm passed ower the island o Kayangel in Palau shortly efter attainin this strength.
Thereafter, it continued yo intensify; at 1200 UTC on November 7, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) upgradit the storm's maximum ten-minute sustained winds to 235 km/h (145 mph), the highest in relation to the cyclone. At 1800 UTC, the JTWC estimated the system's one-minute sustained winds to 315 km/h (195 mph), unofficially making Haiyan the most intense tropical cyclone ever observed. Several hours later, the ee of the cyclone made its first landfaw in the Philippines at Guiuan, Eastren Samar, with only change in intensity; if verified, this would make Haiyan the strongest tropical cyclone to make a landfaw on record, supprisingly the old record of 305 km/h (190 mph) set by Atlantic Hurricane Camille in 1969. Gradually weakening, the storm made five additional landfaws in the kintra before emerging over the Sooth Cheenae Sea. Turning northwastward, the typhoon eventually struck northern Vietnam as a severe tropical storm on November 10. Haiyan was last noticed as a tropical depression by the JMA the follaein day.
