I’m sure you have seen this on the news, but just in case you need a reminder have a look at this summary of the typhoon from the BBC. It is all over the Internet, so do some research as it would make an excellent case study for the exam.

Also look at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-24866265 for excellent satellite images. Think about the importance of tracking storms for predicting hazards and the link to people’s vulnerability and capacity to cope.
