Philippines Battered By Typhoon Haiyan
Typhoon Haiyan, one of the strongest recorded storms in history, created havoc in the Philippines on Friday. The deadly storm has destroyed homes, schools and other major parts of that country’s infrastructure.
Moreover, it is believed that the typhoon has left over 10,000 people dead.
According to a BBC.com report, Tacloban, the capital of Leyte province is one of utter devastation. There are flattened houses, no clean water, no electricity, looting, and very little food.
There are also other provinces that suffered major damages and are without communications, electricity, and have experienced serious people displacement.
The government has deployed thousands of troops to disaster zones, but they too are having great difficulty in accessing remote areas because of damaged road ways, land slides, and flood waters.
