The Western Pacific has some of the Most Destructive Storms in the World, this video breaks down the Top five most intense typhoons according to pressure in recent history.
What comes away interesting from this list though is that even due to global warming all these occur in the 60s, 70s, and 80s. Likely due to the fact Recon aircraft was available at the time. I wonder if recent storms would be stronger if it was available.
