UK Haiyan Relief

November 12, 2013 by  

UK Haiyan Relief, Driving rain is slowing the efforts of the Philippines government and international agencies to bring desperately-needed aid to the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan.

C-130 transport planes flying from Manila and Cebu Island have been delayed by a new tropical storm dumping rain on Tacloban City and the surrounding area of Leyte Province, where up to 10,000 people are thought to have died.

More rain is expected in the next 24 hours, only adding to the misery of the victims of the monster storm.

Haiyan smashed into the central Philippines Friday night, bringing fearsome winds of over 150mph and tsunami-like waves so strong that there is barely a building left standing in the affected regions.

“Everything is wiped out,” said US Marine Brigadier General Paul Kennedy after he spent two hours flying over Leyte Province. “We saw bodies everywhere.”
