It’s hard to imagine death and destruction on a scale the size of Typhoon Haiyan. Everything has been flattened as far as the eye can see.
Current estimates have the death toll above 10,000, with thousands still missing, yet as of this writing the official death toll stands at only 1,744. More than 600,000 people have been left homeless. This is a tragedy of monumental proportions. You can help by clicking on this link:
