Haiyan flattens whole towns across the Phillipines

News Report on Haiyan in Philippines from India's Zee News

Whole towns and villages have been flatten across the Philippines from Manila to Cebu since Haiyan touched down on the Phillipines last Thursday killing 10,000 people. Although Philippines have experienced 20 typhoons this year alone, the typhoons destruction caught millions of people off guard and with nowhere to hide. Infrastructure such as housing, schools, hospitals, roads, bridges, parks and electric stations have all been ripped apart and pummeled by Haiyan's brutal winds which is the largest and deadliest in modern history. No doubt fueled by global warming and climate change. The Philippines is made up of over 1000+ islands like Japan, searching for survivors and delivering necessary aid in forms of food, medicines and clothing for survivors and the non affected people who managed to escape, will be difficult. Some tens of thousands of Filipinos are currently homeless and are missing loved ones who were caught in the eyes of the storm. Sadly, the devastating typhoon will become more common in the future and there is a chance that typhoons of this magnitude will wreck havoc over other neighboring countries. Thousands of bodies are being recovered across Philippines and buried in mass graves as Filipino emergency forces and agencies scramble to reach people impeded by large debris in now isolated destroyed towns or remain trap under the debris. Haiyan's aftermath is reminiscence of Haiti's post earthquake recovery and survival. In a cruel twist of fate, Haiyan's destruction coincides with another incoming typhoon. It also comes as the Climate Change Summit is occurring in Poland. Filipino Chief Yeb Sano, (whose hometown of Tacloban lost 1,000 people out of a population of 220,000) attended the summit delivering a heart felt address to summit gathers to take the dangerous of climate change as a necessity to safeguard the lives of billions of people at the mercy of terrifying typhoons, tsunamis, earthquakes and fires that literally devouring nations directly exposed to Mother Nature's unforgiving wrath each month and year.
