Haiyan (Yolanda) becomes an extremely catastrophic super typhoon and is considered as the most powerful of all Super Typhoons for 2013. It now endangers Leyte and Samar provinces as well as the whole of Central Visayas in the Philippines.
The potential landfall area of this super typhoon is likely along the Northern Leyte on or before noontime on Friday, November 08.
Local disaster officials in Bohol, Philippines, which was affected by 7.2 magnitude earthquake last month, are on red alert, as flashfloods and landslides continue to be a threat.
The province of Bohol is placed under storm signal no. 2.
Families were evacuated in quake-hit towns on Thursday night.
Some fishermen have decided not to set sail while residents in low-lying areas have been advised to prepare for evacuation.
