Typhoon Haiyan in Philippines Killed 10,000 People



With the speed of 315 km/hour, the Typhoon Haiyan in Philippines destroyed 80% of the buildings that she passed. At least 10,000 people died and 650,000 people are displaced from their home.
How the wind that should be tender and safe could kill more than 10,000 people. God is the Most Powerful!


The Typhoon is so powerful that it could lift great ships and throw them to houses and buildings.

The damage was primarily caused by a wall of ocean water -- a storm surge -- so powerful it had even lifted up ships and tossed them onto dry land -- onto what had been houses.
