Earlier this month one of the strongest typhoons on record battered the central islands of the Philippines. “Haiyan” made landfall at Guiuan, and continued to plow through Tacloban, Ormoc, and throughout the Visayas. The now familiar numbers reported are staggering – sustained winds of 150 mph; waves as high as 15 ft; more than 5,000 confirmed dead; 4 million displaced; 12 million overall affected. The UN has remarked that the scale of destruction is unprecedented.
