Storm Chaser Releases Final Cut of his Crazy First Person POV Super Typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda Video
Super Typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda was a freak of nature that is unlike anything you have ever seen before. The devastation can be see in the numbers of those affected by this super storm:
According to NDRRMC, they estimated:
9,679,059 people or
2,095,262 families, were affected
615,774 were displaced
over 443,300 are in evacuation centers
13,473 houses were destroyed
9,717 were damaged
over 2,000 missing
and the death toll is already over 4,000
But numbers still can’t paint an accurate picture of how devastating and scary it was to be there. Though this video still won’t be able to match the fear and horror the one might have felt if you were actually there, it’s the closest we can all get.
