Typhoon Mangkhut, which slammed into the Philippines on Saturday, was the world’s strongest storm this year.
Its winds reached a staggering 165 miles per hour. That’s 75 miles per hour stronger than Hurricane Florence, which hit the US on the same day.
At 168 miles across, this massive storm covered an area roughly equal to the distance between London and Stoke-on-Trent.
The human impact has been equally huge.
Reports are still coming in but we already know that at least 64 people sadly lost their lives.
