  3. 3. Petrel is a type of sea bird and Haiyan is the Chinese name for petrel.
  4. 4. Areas affected Micronesia, Philippines, Southern China, Vietnam.
  5. 5. These are such storms getting worse in a warming world? They are basically just different names for the same extreme weather phenomena in different parts of the world. These storms are called hurricanes In the Atlantic and Northeast Pacific region "typhoons" in the Northwest Pacific region "cyclones" in the South Pacific and Indian Ocean region
  6. 6. Typhoon haiyan was one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded, which devastated portions of Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, on November 8, 2013. It is the deadliest Philippine typhoon on record, killing at least 6,300 people in that country alone. Haiyan is also the strongest storm recorded at landfall, and unofficially the strongest typhoon ever recorded in terms of wind speed. As of January 2014, bodies were still being found.
  7. 7. Tracking generally westward, environmental conditions favored tropical cyclogenesis and the system developed into a tropical depression the following day.
  8. 8. After becoming a tropical storm and attaining the name Haiyan at 0000 UTC/GMT on November 4, the system began a period of rapid intensification that brought it to typhoon intensity by 1800 UTC on November 5.
  9. 9. By November 6, the Joint T yphoon Warning Centre(JTWC) assessed the system as a Category 5-equivalent super typhoon on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale; the storm passed over the island of Kayangel in Palau shortly after attaining this strength. Thereafter, it continued to intensify; at 1200 UTC on November 7, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) upgraded the storm's maximum ten-minute sustained winds to 230 km/h (145 mph), the highest in relation to the cyclone. The Hong Kong Observatory put the storm's maximum ten-minute sustained winds at 275 km/h (170 mph)
  10. 10. Prior to landfall in the central Philippines, while the China Meteorological Administration estimated the maximum two-minute sustained winds at the time to be around 78 m/s (280 km/h or 175 mph). At 1800 UTC, the JTWC (joint typhoon warning centre) estimated the system's one-minute sustained winds to 315 km/h (195 mph), Unofficially making Haiyan the strongest tropical cyclone ever observed based on wind speed; several others have recorded lower central pressure readings. Several hours later, the eye of the cyclone made its first landfall in the Philippines at Guiuan, Eastern Samar. Gradually weakening, the storm made five additional landfalls in the country before emerging over the South China Sea.

  12. 12. Typhoon Haiyan Devastates Agriculture, Affects More Than a Million Farmers. Hard hit were the countrys rice fields, coconut trees and fishing communities, according to reports from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), making uncertain the long- term outlook for agriculture there.
  13. 13. About 12 percent of the Philippines $431 billion GDP comes from agricultural products. Rice is grown on some 7.9 million acres of land and provides jobs for millions of Filipinos. But the FAO is now reporting that Haiyan likely destroyed thousands of acres dedicated to growing rice and the livelihoods of more than a million farmers. Fishing villages having been severely affected, with loss of boats and fishing gear. The FAO doesnt yet have details information about sugarcane and as such, couldnt comment but the path of the storm took it right across two of the largest cane-producing regions in the country. Sugarcane is a $1.6 billion industry for the Philippines.
  14. 14. Effect on coconut production Philippines is the worlds top coconut oil producer, according to the UN Conference on Trade and Development. The FAO projects severe impacts on coconut production, as well as wide-scale destruction to storage facilities and rural infrastructure. The latter experienced extensive damage.
  15. 15. Effect on vietnam Turning northwestward, the typhoon eventually struck northern Vietnam as a severe tropical storm on November 10. Haiyan was last noted as a tropical depression by the JMA the following day. Damages Caused by Typhoon haiyan in all countries The cyclone caused catastrophic destruction in the Visayas, particularly on Samar and Leyte. According to UN officials, about 11 million people have been affected many have been left homeless. In terms of money $2.86 billion US Dollars. 6,340 people were dead confirmed, 1,061 missing.
  16. 16. Formed November 3, 2013 Dissipated November 11, 2013 Highest winds 10-minute sustained:230 km/h (145 mph) 1-minute sustained:315 km/h (195 mph) Lowest pressure 895 mbar (hPa); 26.43 inHg (Estimated) Fatalities 6,340 confirmed, 1,061 missing Damage $2.86 billion
