Philippines continues rebuilding after devastating Typhoon Bopha


IIRC Typhoon BophaIn December, Typhoon Bopha, a category 5 super typhoon, struck Palau and the Philippine island of Mindanao, causing hundreds of deaths and leaving thousands homeless. Now, more than a month after the storm hit, communities are still struggling to recover from the devastation.

According to the International Committee of the Red Cross:

In a matter of hours, some communities in Eastern Mindanao were literally blown away by Typhoon Bopha (locally known as Pablo). . . . More than 90 percent of the area is a scene of utter destruction in four of the worst-hit municipalities; many people have seen their entire livelihood wiped out in one fell swoop. In response, the ICRC is stepping up its operations by dispatching more food and other essential supplies.
