When typhoon Haiyan, referred to locally as Yolanda, smashed into the central Philippines on November 8th, 2014, it was the most severe storm ever recorded to make landfall. In the end Yalonda claimed more than six thousand lives, devastated infrastructure, rendered tens of thousands homeless, and its aftermath instigated widespread looting and chaos. Tacloban, one of the cities hardest hit, was largely underprepared for the scale of the destruction, and nearly six months later its residents are still struggling to rebuild their lives.
