Killer Typhoon

A look at Typhoon Haiyan, which killed thousands and left millions homeless when it struck the Philippines on Nov. 8, 2013, with 200-mph winds and a two-story-high storm surge. In addition to detailing what led to such a powerful cyclone, the documentary examines the relief effort that followed, including the difficulties that resulted from impassable roads and shuttered gas stations.
