One of the Deadliest Typhoon | Haiyan Documentary | Geographic TV.

It was the strongest cyclone to hit land in recorded history. On November 8, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippines, whipping the low-lying and densely-populated islands with 200 mph winds and sending a two-story-high storm surge flooding into homes, schools, and hospitals. It wiped villages off the map and devastated cities, including the hard-hit provincial capital Tacloban. Estimates count more than 5,000 dead and millions homeless. What made Haiyan so destructive? Meteorologists charged with tracking Pacific storms reveal why the Pacific is such fertile ground for cyclones, and film crew documents how conditions dramatically deteriorated in the storm’s aftermath, as impassable roads and shuttered gas stations paralyzed the critical relief effort, leaving food, water, and medicine to pile up at the airport. Disaster preparedness experts scramble to understand why the Philippines was so vulnerable. As climate change and sea level rise threaten millions of the world’s most impoverished people with stronger, and perhaps more frequent, storms, how can we prepare for the next monster typhoon?

    Haiyan taught everyone to >> Never underestimate mother nature, and never trust the government.

    From this show, it seemed like the Americans or other countries with more advanced weather predicting machines knew this super typhoon was coming. How come this was not shared with the Philippine government so the people of Tacloban could have better prepared themselves

    Correction: Your description of patients in the hospital being transferred on mattresses at 26:13– That is not a hospital. That is Hotel Alejandro, which has rooms on the 1st floor.

    on a second thought, if people in position assigned the right people who actually knows and have knowledge more about this to handle the disaster management it could have at least minimize the effects of this catastrophe. we should have a separate agency who solely handle disasters alone to completely consolidate decision making. ang dami kasi mga paepal na official kaya ang response were slow and it got confusng in the ground. talks namumulitika. this is where i saw mar a failure as a leader and lost confidence to aquino admin.

    What gets me the most is the fact that these experts knew how dangerous it is, certainly the government knew that it's going to be very strong typhoon, why didn't they evacuate the weakest areas on coastal line on higher ground, why didn't they do something, instead of waiting what will happen they could safe hundreds of lives if only they would do something before it hit. I know they are used on typhoons but c'mon. They knew how dangerous it was, it was different that any other, that guy said it himself. Homes can be rebuilt, but human lives can't be restored. That is a sad part of all this.
