Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) Update #14 (w/ Video)

Issued (09 UTC) 5pm PhT 110913

NOTE: If you have any images or videos showing the aftermath of the storm, please share them with us at or by our Facebook Page HERE

Typhoon Haiyan (Bagyong Yolanda) has finally left the Philippine Area of Responsibility and is now heading towards Vietnam. The storm center was last located approximately 750km west of Manila or about 650km southeast of Da Nang, Vietnam. Maximum sustained winds have decreased slightly to 195kph with gusts of up to 240kph. Typhoon Haiyan is moving west northwestward at 30kph.

Watch our video below for the in-depth details on Typhoon Haiyan and the trail of destruction that it left across the Central Philippines.

Typhoon Haiyan will move towards Vietnam and will likely make landfall just south of Vietnam by early Monday morning as a strong Category 2 typhoon. Widespread heavy rains will bring flooding across Hanoi and the Red River Delta. Strong winds of up to 160kph and storm surges of up to 6 feet could batter the coast. Parts of Southwestern China (especially Hainan Island) and Laos could also see some stormy conditions brought by Haiyan.

We are also watching a potential cyclone that could impact the Philippines by next week. That portion is near the end of the video.

We'll have another update later tonight. Stay safe!
