After Typhoon Haiyan

In January 2014 we visited the Philippines for a month, to record and report on the impacts of Typhoon Haiyan. Haiyan is still the strongest typhoon to ever hit land, doing so on the Filippino coast on 8 November 2013.

By the time we arrived in Tacloban, the eastern city hit first and hardest, the clean up was underway but many challenges remained. Rubble and debris still covered large parts of the city, bodies were still being uncovered, and huge numbers of displaced people continued to live in ramshackle tent towns occupying any available space.
