What a massive storm surge looks like

Here's what the storm surge from what was probably the strongest typhoon (and hurricane, of course) at landfall EVER looked like.  That would be Super Typhoon Haiyan, a couple of weeks ago, in the Philippines.

It's impressive.  Especially on the other side of the world from it, where we don't have to live through it.  I hope the Filipinos will be able to recover from this smash -- they are subject to a lot of different types of natural disasters.
