Philippines Typhoon Haiyan Appeal
Typhoon Haiyan – known locally as Yolanda – swept across the Philippines on Friday 8th November with winds of up to 235 kph, leaving a trail of massive destruction in its wake.
With power still down in many areas, the full extent of the damage is not yet known, but the lives of 9.8 million people have been torn apart.
The typhoon was one of the strongest ever to make landfall, flattening thousands of houses, and destroying schools and an airport in the eastern city of Tacloban.
