Is Haiyan the strongest typhoon in the world?

To mark the 8th anniversary of the devastating storm Haiyan/Yolanda, we’re launching a new series called Haiyan Conversations.

Haiyan, the World’s Strongest Typhoon? Dr. Alfredo Mahar Francisco A. Lagmay will discuss the science, severity, effect, and whether or not Haiyan is indeed the strongest typhoon. He is a professor at the University of the Philippines Diliman’s National Institute of Geological Sciences and the executive director of Project NOAH. 

Additionally, there will be three panels of reactors present. The first reactor is Dr. Nathaniel T. Servando, the Deputy Administrator for Administration and Engineering Services and Oversight of PAGASA Regional Services in the Visayas.

Second is the Director III, Administrative and Financial Management Services of the Office of Civil Defense in Manila. He is also the Regional Director of the Office of Civil Defense stationed in this region. A survivor of Haiyan himself, Dr. Edgar L. Posadas, served as our second reactor. 

Our third reactor is Mr. Getulio Maraya, Jr., the public information officer and board member of the Tacloban Federation of Senior Citizens Association and the publisher of Newsmonger, a local community newspaper circulated in Tacloban City and Eastern Visayas.

This conversation series is open to the public.
