Typhoon Haiyan, strongest ever?

Last week, I mentioned that a monster “Super-Typhoon” was about to crush the Philippines, and that’s exactly what happened the next 2 days…devastating the entire region.
It doesn’t matter from a humanity point of view, but this article goes into the difficulty of determining if the storm was the strongest on record.
It’s important to point out, that when you hear the word, “ever”, that is a very very bad to use. There are stories of bad storms going back through Biblical days, but there is no data available to measure storms pre-1775, so to use “worst ever”, is really bad science and bad reporting. What can be said is “worst ON RECORD”.

Nevertheless, here’s the article, detailing the issue:
