Super Typhoon Haiyan

Super Typhoon Haiyan (local name Yolanda) arrived in the Philippines at 4:40 a.m. on November 8 hitting Guiuan, Eastern Samar Island, with wind speeds of 195 mph, making it the strongest tropical cyclone on record to have made landfall anywherein the world. Thousands are thought to be dead with millions more suffering the consequence of destruction on par with that seen after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. The needs are immense - shelter, food, water, sanitation, medicine.
