Some of you may have heard the news that the Philippines was recently struck by Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan), one of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded, leaving the survivors empty-handed. The "apocalyptic" aftermath shows a horrifying scene of scattered debris from broken to completely destroyed houses, and dead people.
The government's confirmed death toll was 1,774 early Tuesday, said Jose Lampe Cuisa Jr., the Philippine ambassador to the United States. The storm has injured 2,487 more, and displaced 660,000 people from their homes. Source: CNN
