On November 8, 2013 the Philippines was hit by Typhoon Haiyan – the most powerful tropical cyclone to ever make landfall in recorded history. With a width of 370 miles and sustained winds and gusts reaching 235 mph, it made landfall a total of 6 times with a storm surge as high as 20 feet leaving most of the middle region of the Philippines flat and devastated. As of this date, 13 million people have been affected with 4.9 of them being children. 4,200 people are as dead with many more unaccounted, missing or under piles of debris. 494,611 homes were destroyed, 12,501 injured, and 2.5 million in need of food assistance.

The disaster is so big it left the entire country in shock and its government overwhelmed on how to start relief or where to begin search and rescue. It will take years to rebuild and recover and help is definitely needed.
