World's strongest storms

Typhoon Haiyan is possibly the strongest storm ever to hit land. But it is far from the only monster storm to cause unimaginable amounts of death and destruction. 360's Gary Tuchman looks at some of the world's worst storms.

    I cannot say the things that words alone cannot because it's beyond greatness you peoples express your cherished aspirations.

    My heart goes out to all those affected by typhoon Haiyan, and while this storm is far more devasting.
    it seems that many were caught off guard as we were when hurricane Ike devasted Galveston Island some years ago.
    Many thought they could ride out the storm, but the storm surge was massive. There is much to be learned from these new super storms that should be shared with others around the world.

    In your story you did not include category 5 typhoons that hit Guam in 1997 and 2002 or even the 8.2 earthquake of 1993. Guam does not suffer fatalities because the buildings are concrete, however we do suffer the loss of water and power for a period after as well as property loss.
