If you’ve heard about how the super typhoon Haiyan (local name, Yolanda) hit the Philippines, then you know that the situation isn’t good. Coming in from the Pacific, its course took it through several regions in the Visayas islands, including Guiuan, Samar, Iloilo, Leyte, Cebu and Bohol - the last of which experienced a magnitude 7 earthquake just last month.
Supplies aren’t getting where and when they should since roads aren’t passable (due to all the uprooted trees,) and one of the main airports in Tacloban is down due to the damage it took from the storm, whose winds reached up to 195 kph. Countless families have been displaced from their homes due to all the structural damage caused by the winds and the resulting storm surge.
The number of people affected by the storm can’t be considered official yet (because communication is still flaky at best) but at the time of this posting:
The number of lives claimed by Supertyphoon “Yolanda” (international name Haiyan) has increased to 138. (...) Majority of the casualties, 118, were from Leyte. All were still unidentified. A total of 4,282,636 persons have been affected in 36 provinces throughout the Visayas region. An estimated 3,438 houses have also been reported damaged because of the strong winds brought by Yolanda.
The 600 kilometer wide super typhoon, regarded by meteorologists as the strongest ever in recorded history, caused P6,454,769 worth of damages to agriculture and infrastructure. At least 28 provinces were experiencing power outages while 11 were having trouble establishing communication lines.
More details can be found here.
Please, help if you can! Even a simple reblog to boost awareness helps. And keeping our country in your thoughts and prayers works just as well. Here’s a list of links to organizations accepting donations for the victims of Haiyan!

And if you’re elsewhere in the world:
This is a very short list! I hope to edit in more as I find them. But a more complete, updated and comprehensive list of relief initiatives that people all over the Philippines and overseas can be found here on Rappler!
