Imagine the power of a tornado…. now think of the devastation a tsunami can bring….. now combine those two together!
That’s pretty much what happened to the central part of the Philippines! Entire islands are said to be missing while others were flattened completely! Buildings were pushed down, houses were swept away and century old trees were uprooted like they were nothing. Lands were demolished with nothing spared in the way of Super Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Yolanda, said to be the STRONGEST storm ever recorded. Super typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda was reported to have record breaking wind gusts reaching up to 380kph!
Families, fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, friends and relatives were torn apart! One of the islands hit is estimating a death toll of over 10,000 people! What’s worse is now the power and communication lines for the survivors are severely limited, at best. Plus, there is an intensive shortage of food, drinking water, clean clothing, a place to sleep and other basic necessities.
