On 8 November 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made landfall on the Philippines, tearing through 36 provinces, with the eye passing Eastern Samar, Leyte, Cebu, Iloilo, Antique, and Palawan. Torrential rainfall, powerful winds, and catastrophic storm surges raged through the country, inflicting a high human toll and causing unparalleled damage and destruction in vast areas. 
As of 10 November, 9.5 million persons are reported to be affected across 9 regions, and 618,175 persons are displaced1. Initial estimates are that 10,000 people are feared dead. The Government of the Republic of the Philippines has declared a “state of calamity” and requested international assistance in response to the devastating impacts of the Typhoon.
