Typhoon Haiyan or Yolanda has made landfall along Southern Samar and then a second landfall on Leyte as a record breaking Typhoon with winds on a 1 minute wind scale via JTWC at 314kph. That is stronger than the max winds in Typhoon Tip and the equivalant of the winds typically found in a EF3 to EF4 Tornado. The difference is the wind around the eye wall of this monster is about 100kph wide.

The Philippines is braced for a strengthening typhoon set to lash the South East Asian country later this week.
According to Weather forecasts, Typhoon Haiyan, locally named as Yolanda, is to make landfall over the central Philippines on 8 November and risks causing flood and mudslides.
Currently hovering over the Pacific Ocean, north of New Guinea, the storm is rapidly moving northwest at a speed of 25kph.
Haiyan’s 150km/h winds are gusting at 185km/h but is approaching super-typhoon status with gusts predicted to reach 295km/h.
“It is moving through an area of warm waters and low wind shear which is expected to help the storm strengthen,” according to Nasa weather reports.
Philippines authorities have alerted civil defence forces in Manila’s metropolitan area and the provinces of Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Bicol, Western Visayas, Central Visayas, Eastern Visayas, Caraga and Northern Mindanao.
“Haiyan will rival Utor as the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines this year,” stated AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Eric Wanenchak.

Haiyan, potentially the strongest recorded typhoon to make landfall, slammed into the Philippines’ central islands on Friday, forcing millions of people to flee to safer ground or take refuge in storm shelters. The category-five super typhoon whipped up giant waves as high as 4-5 metres (12-15 feet) that lashed the islands of Leyte and Samar, and was on track to carve a path through popular holiday destinations.
