Typhoon Haiyan, also called Typhoon Yolanda, hit the Philippines’ eastern seaboard on Friday, November 8th. Winds reached 147 mph, with gusts even higher, and waves were as high as 15m (45ft), the BBC reported. The storm brought nearly 15.75 inches of rain in some places. Typhoon Haiyan tore through the Philippines flattening entire neighborhoods, washing away homes and buildings, cutting power and scattering debris for miles. The massive typhoon, one the worst storms ever recorded, affected more than 4.23 million people in 270 towns and cities, according to the Philippines Social Welfare and Development Department. The death toll is expected to exceed 10,000 people. Hundreds of thousands more have been displaced.
