Typhoon Haiyan, which recently hit the Philippines was devastating and deadly. The death count is at least 10,000 and will probably be much higher. But, even with this high death toll, Haiyan doesn’t even break into the top 35 most deadly typhoons. The most deadly typhoon in recorded history occurred on November 12, 1970. The Great Bhoda Cyclone killed up to 500,000 people. The ocean area that produced this deadliest storm was the Bay of Bengal, which has produced 26 out of the 35 deadliest typhoons in history.
