NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg took this photograph of deadly typhoon #Haiyan (also known as #Yolanda) on November 9, 2013. Officials from the Philippines Red Cross fear the powerful storm may have killed as many as 1,200 people. According to satellite observations, Haiyan’s winds were some of the fastest on record for a storm making landfall.
