Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - The strongest typhoon in history slammed into the Philippines Friday morning, causing landslides, power outages, and wide-spread damage.

Typhoon Haiyan unleashed 20-foot waves and winds higher than 200 miles per hour. The storm has killed four people so far, with that number expected to rise. It also forced more than a million people out of their homes.

The storm may be the strongest to hit land and is moving towards China and Vietnam. About 20 typhoons hit the Philippines each year.
