Super-Typhoon in the Philippines, November 2013
At the beginning of November 2013, the typhoon Haiyan badly hit several countries in South-East Asia: Micronesia and Palau, Taiwan, China, Vietnam and in particular the Philippines on the 07 and 08 of November. It is probably the strongest storm ever recorded. It is reported that many thousands of people died and approximately 11 million people have been affected by the passage of this super-typhoon. Within the framework of the International Charter ‘Space and Major Disasters’, SERTIT, in cooperation with global value adders, mapped cyclone impact particularly in the northern part of Cebu Island, the Daanbantayan area and Bantayan island.
Mapping products can be consulted on SERTIT’s and DLR ZKI’s Rapid Mapping Service Portals.
