Storm chaser Jason Reynolds was among the people in the Philippines when the storm hit. He said that among the 35 typhoons his company has filmed since 2005, Haiyan was the worst. "It was without a doubt the most catastrophic event I've witnessed before my eyes," Reynolds said of the super typhoon. "To actually go through a disaster as it takes place and then be there afterward just compares to nothing. It'll probably be the only time in my life."
