Update PhOtOs-Aftermath of SuperTyphoon=10,000+ Dead in Philippines




Published: Nov 6, 2013, 7:56 AM EST weather,com


While the Atlantic hurricane season may have taken its last breath, that is certainly not the case in the western Pacific Ocean.
Super Typhoon Haiyan will pass near the Republic of Palau Wednesday night into early Thursday local time. The northern island of Kayangel will take a direct hit from Haiyan.

A typhoon is considered a super typhoon when maximum wind speeds exceed 150 mph.

Haiyan's forecast west-northwest track will put it on a collision course with the Philippines later this week.

According to the latest forecast from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center (shown in the second graphic at right), Haiyan may strengthen further before reaching the central Philippines early Friday, local time (Thursday night, U.S. time).

Given this more southern track than past tropical cyclones this season, the Philippine capital of Manila, home to roughly 12 million people in the metro area, is in danger of a direct strike by Haiyan Friday night or early Saturday local time (Friday, U.S. time).

Furthermore, another tropical cyclone (T.D. 30W) has already soaked parts of the central Philippines. Any additional rain from Haiyan will fall over saturated ground in the central Philippines, raising the threat of flooding and mudslides.

Haiyan is then expected to sweep quickly into Vietnam by Sunday, possibly still as a strong typhoon.

According to the Joint Typhoon Warning Center, the Philippines are hit by six or seven tropical cyclones in an average year.

In October, Typhoon Nari flooded farmlands and destroyed thousands of homes north of Manila.

Heavy rainbands on the southern edge of Typhoon Trami flooded Manila in August, claiming at least 18 lives and chasing over one quarter million from their homes. This occurred just over a week after Typhoon Utor slammed into the northern Philippines.

Roughly 30 percent of the average annual rainfall in the northern Philippines is believed to be from tropical cyclones, according to a 2008 satellite study.

Haiyan is the Chinese word for petrel, a type of bird that lives over the open sea and returns to land only for breeding. Haiyan is the 28th named storm of the 2013 Western Pacific typhoon season.

UPDATE: Super Typhoon Haiyan, perhaps strongest ever, plows across Philippines

Updated 8:48 AM EST, Fri November 8, 2013


Super Typhoon Haiyan makes landfall


Super Typhoon Haiyan -- perhaps the strongest storm ever -- plowed Friday across the central Philippines, leaving widespread devastation in its wake.

It roared onto Samar at 4:30 a.m., flooding streets and knocking out power and communications networks in many areas of the hilly island in the region of Eastern Visayas, and then continued its march, barreling into four other Philippine islands as it moved across the archipelago.

At least three people were killed and seven hurt, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said Friday. Some 125,000 took refuge in evacuation centers and hundreds of flights were canceledWith sustained winds of 315 kph (195 mph) and gusts as strong as 380 kph (235 mph), Haiyan may be the strongest tropical cyclone to hit land anywhere in recorded history. It will take further analysis after the storm passes to establish whether it is a record.

Its speed -- moving westward at 41 kph -- meant the worst was over quickly. But the damage was still severe. "About 90% of the infrastructure and establishments were heavily damaged," Gwendolyn Pang, the secretary general of the Philippine National Red Cross, told CNNI.

About 25 areas were hit, she said, adding that assessment teams were prepared to enter the stricken areas as soon as conditions allowed.
But they cannot do it alone, she said: "We will be definitely needing more support for this one."

She predicted the casualty toll will rise as soon as aid workers reach affected areas, where flood waters were as high as 10 feet.

Maryann Zamora, a field communications specialist for the charity World Vision, said her organization "has been working through so many disasters, so many typhoons -- but this is quite different."

"This is the strongest I ever felt so far," she said by phone from the island of Cebu.

Haiyan, known in the Philippines as Yolanda, retained much of its force as it moved westward with sustained winds of 295 kph (185 mph), which puts it well above the 252 kph threshold for a Category 5 hurricane, the highest category on the Saffir--Simpson hurricane wind scale.

Video showed streets flooded with debris and sheets of metal flying through the air.

Gov. Roger Mercado of Southern Leyte, a province in Eastern Visayas near the storm's path, said Friday morning that fallen trees had made impassable all roads. "We don't know the extent of the damage," Mercado said. "We are trying to estimate this. We are prepared, but this is really a wallop."

With sea travel suspended in many areas, more than 3,000 travelers were stranded in ports, the council said.

The typhoon was forecast to move away from the Philippines late Friday or early Saturday and head into the South China Sea in the direction of Vietnam.

Meteorologists predicted that it would maintain super typhoon intensity throughout its passage over the Philippines. A super typhoon has surface winds that sustain speeds of more than 240 kph (150 mph) for at least a minute, according to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Haiyan was so large in diameter that, at one point, its clouds were affecting two-thirds of the country, which stretches more than 1,850 kilometers (1,150 miles). Tropical-storm-force winds extended 240 kilometers from the typhoon's center.



Ahead of the typhoon's arrival, thousands of people had been relocated away from particularly vulnerable areas in the city of Tacloban, which is situated in a coastal area of the region that bore the initial brunt of the storm.

Communications with Tacloban, which has a population of around 200,000, were disrupted after the typhoon struck. Video aired by CNN affiliate ABS-CBN showed streets in the city filled with water and debris.

In a speech Thursday, President Benigno S. Aquino III warned residents of the "calamity our countrymen will face in these coming days."

"This is a very real danger, and we can mitigate and lessen its effects if we use the information available to prepare," he said.

Authorities had aircraft ready to respond, and officials had placed relief supplies in the areas that were expected to get hit, Aquino said.
"The effects of this storm can be eased through solidarity," he said.
Earthquake survivors vulnerable

Authorities warned people in provinces across the country to prepare for possible flash floods, landslides and a storm surge as high as 7 meters (23 feet). About 125,000 people nationwide were moved to evacuation centers.

Among the most vulnerable were people living in tents on the central Philippine island of Bohol, killing at least 222 people, injuring nearly 1,000 and displacing about 350,000, according to authorities.

On Friday, they got a second jolt -- this time from the typhoon's winds and rain, but they were spared a direct hit.

"For the past three weeks people are still experiencing aftershocks," said Aaron Aspi, a communications specialist in Bohol for World Vision. "And at the same time, these rains are giving them a really hard time."
Aspi said that, despite living in drenched tents, many people were afraid to relocate to sturdier structures because of the aftershocks.

Another island near the storm's path was the popular beach resort of Boracay. Some tourists there cut short vacations on Thursday to get away from the possible danger.

Situated near an area of the Pacific Ocean where tropical cyclones form, the Philippines regularly suffers severe storm damage.
An average of 20 typhoons hit the nation every year.

In December, Typhoon Bopha wreaked devastation on the southern Philippine island of Mindanao. The storm, the most powerful to hit the country last year, is estimated to have killed as many as 1,900 people.

Heartbreaking Before and After Photos Show how Typhoon Haiyan Flattened Entire City of Tacloban

  • The official death toll from the disaster rose to 10,000 + today, though authorities have said they expect that to rise
  • Tacloban, a city of about 220,000 people, bore the full force of the winds and the tsunami-like storm surges
  • Dramatic photos show full extent of the ravaged city, which has been left with dead bodies in the streets
  • Pallets of supplies and teams of doctors are waiting to get into the city of Tacloban
  • Challenges of delivering the assistance means few in the stricken city have received help
By Anna Edwards, Daily Mail UK, 13 November 2013


It was once a vibrant city, packed with neat rows of colourful homes surrounded by lush green parks.
But now all that remains is a husk of Tacloban; the place that so many called home is now a grey and barren wasteland after deadly Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines city, crushing everything in its way.

These heartbreaking aerial photos show how every corner of the city was torn up by the deadly storm.




The official death toll from the disaster rose to over 10,000 today, though authorities
have said they expect that to rise markedly



Tacloban, a city of about 220,000 people on Leyte island, bore the full force of the winds and the tsunami-like storm surges Friday.
The official death toll from the disaster rose to 1,774 today, though authorities have said they expect that to rise dramatically. They fear estimates of 10,000 dead are accurate and might be low.

Bodies piled in the streets as makeshift mortuaries are overrun and Philippine typhoon rescue teams warn death toll will 'rise sharply' from the 10,000 already confirmed

The dead, decomposing and stinking, litter the streets of the city or are buried in the debris.
Most of the city is in ruins, a tangled mess of destroyed houses, cars and trees, as these pictures show. Malls, garages and shops have all been stripped of food and water by hungry residents.
The loss of life appears to be concentrated in Tacloban and surrounding areas, including a portion of Samar island that is separated from Leyte island by a strait. It is possible that other devastated areas are so isolated they have not yet been reached.

Horrifying Footage of Devastating Typhoon Haiyan





Desperately needed food, water and medical aid are only trickling into this city that took
the worst blow from Typhoon Haiyan - five days after the deadly storm hit.

Nearly a week after what could be the Philippines' deadliest disaster, aid is coming - pallets of supplies and teams of doctors are waiting to get into Tacloban.
But the challenges of delivering the assistance means few in the stricken city have received help.
Presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said relief goods were getting into the city, and the supply should increase now that the airport and a bridge to the island were open.

'We are not going to leave one person behind - one living person behind,' he said. 'We will help, no matter how difficult, no matter how inaccessible.'

The U.N. said it had released $25 million in emergency funds to pay for shelter materials and household items, and for assistance with the provision of health services, safe water supplies and sanitation facilities.





Pallets of supplies and teams of doctors are waiting to get into Tacloban -
but the challenges of delivering the assistance means few in the stricken city have received help


The USS George Washington is headed toward the region with massive amounts of water and food, but the Pentagon said the aircraft carrier won't arrive until Thursday. The U.S. also said it is providing $20 million in immediate aid.
Aid totaling tens of millions of dollars has been pledged by many other countries, including Japan, Australia and Britain, which is sending a Royal Navy vessel.

'We need help. Nothing is happening. We haven't eaten since yesterday afternoon,' pleaded a weeping Aristone Balute, an 81-year-old woman who failed to get a flight out of Tacloban for Manila, the capital.

'There is a huge amount that we need to do. We have not been able to get into the remote communities,'

U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos said in Manila, launching an appeal for $301 million to help the more than 11 million people estimated to be affected by the storm.

'Even in Tacloban, because of the debris and the difficulties with logistics and so on, we have not been able to get in the level of supply that we would want to. We are going to do as much as we can to bring in more,' she said.





Doctors in Tacloban said they were desperate for medicine. Medics at a small makeshift clinic
said they had treated around 1,000 people for cuts, bruises, lacerations and deep wounds


In Cebu, to the southwest of Tacloban, the Philippine air force has been sending three C-130s back and forth to Tacloban from dawn to dusk, and had delivered £400,000 of relief supplies, Lt. Col. Marciano Jesus Guevara said.
A lack of electricity in Tacloban means planes can't land there at night.
Guevara said the C-130s have transported nearly 3,000 civilians out of the disaster zone, and that the biggest problem in Tacloban is a lack of clean drinking water.

'Water is life,' he said. 'If you have water with no food, you'll survive.'

A team from Médecins Sans Frontières, complete with medical supplies, arrived in Cebu island Saturday looking for a flight to Tacloban, but hadn't left by Tuesday. A spokesman for the group said it was 'difficult to tell' when it would be able to leave.

'We are in contact with the authorities, but the (Tacloban) airport is only for the Philippines military use,' Lee Pik Kwan said in a telephone interview.
There are reports there is no evidence of any organized delivery of food, water or medical supplies, though piles of aid have begun to arrive at the airport. Some people lined up to get water from a hose, presumably from the city supply.





Thousands of typhoon victims were trying to get out of Tacloban.
They are camping at the airport in a desperate bid to try and leave the ruined city


Doctors in Tacloban said they were desperate for medicine. At small makeshift clinic with shattered windows beside the city's ruined airport tower, army and air force medics said they had treated around 1,000 people for cuts, bruises, lacerations and deep wounds.

'It's overwhelming,' said air force Capt. Antonio Tamayo. 'We need more medicine. We cannot give anti-tetanus vaccine shots because we have none.'

The longer survivors go without access to clean water, food, shelter and medical help, the greater chance of disease breaking out and people dying as a result of wounds sustained in the storm.
Thousands of typhoon victims were trying to get out of Tacloban. They camped at the airport and ran onto the tarmac when planes came in, surging past a broken iron fence and a few soldiers and police trying to control them. Most didn't make it aboard the military flights out of the city.

There is growing concern about recovering corpses from throughout the disaster zone. 'It really breaks your heart when you see them,' said Maj. Gen. Romeo Poquiz, commander of the 2nd Air Division.

'We're limited with manpower, the expertise, as well as the trucks that have to transport them to different areas for identification,' Poquiz said. 'Do we do a mass burial, because we can't identify them anymore? If we do a mass burial, where do you place them?'





The city is now a grey shell of what it was: Tacloban bore the full force
of the winds and the tsunami-like storm surges on Friday

Most Tacloban residents spent a rainy night wherever they could - in the ruins of destroyed houses, in the open along roadsides and shredded trees. Some slept under tents brought in by the government or relief groups.

'There is no help coming in. They know this is a tragedy. They know our needs are urgent. Where is the shelter?' said Aristone Balute's granddaughter, Mylene, who was also at the airport. 'We are confused. We don't know who is in charge.'

Damaged roads and other infrastructure are complicating relief efforts. Government officials and police and army officers are in many cases among the victims themselves, hampering coordination. The typhoon destroyed military buildings that housed 1,000 soldiers in Leyte province.
There were other distractions, including a jailbreak in Tacloban. Army Brig. Gen. Virgilio Espineli, the deputy regional military commander, said he wasn't sure how many of the 600 inmates fled.





Officials fear estimates of 10,000 dead are accurate and might be low.
The dead,
decomposing and stinking, litter the streets or are buried in the debris.

At Matnog, the port for ferries leaving for Samar island, dozens of trucks piled high with aid were waiting to cross. In Manila, soldiers loaded pallets of water, medical supplies and food into C-130 planes bound for the disaster area.
For now, relief has come to a lucky few, including Joselito Caimoy, a 42-year-old truck driver. He was able to get his wife, son and 3-year-old daughter on a flight out of Tacloban. They embraced in a tearful goodbye, but Caimoy stayed behind to guard what's left of his home and property.

'People are just scavenging in the streets. People are asking food from relatives, friends. The devastation is too much. ... The malls, the grocery stories have all been looted,' he said. 'They're empty. People are hungry. And they (the authorities) cannot control the people.'

The storm also killed eight people in southern China and inflicted hundreds of millions of dollars in damage to farming and fishing industries, Chinese state media reported Tuesday.
The Philippines, an archipelago nation of more than 7,000 islands, is annually buffeted by tropical storms and typhoons, but Haiyan was an especially large catastrophe. Its winds were among the strongest ever recorded, and it may have killed more people than the previous deadliest Philippine storm, Thelma, in which about 5,100 people died in the central Philippines in 1991.
The country's deadliest disaster on record was the 1976 magnitude-7.9 earthquake that triggered a tsunami in the Moro Gulf in the southern Philippines, killing 5,791 people.
