Last Friday, super typhoon Haiyan laid a path of destruction right through the middle of the small cluster of islands of the Philippines. Enormous waves from the record storm destroyed nearly 80 percent of structures in the Leyte province and a reported 10,000 people were killed with more than 600,000 displace in the centralize section of the storm. As is typical in areas suffering from natural disasters, help is difficult to come by.
The United Nations told Reuters that relief operations have been hampered due to damage and complete destruction to roads, airports, and bridges. Some survivors have been without food, water, and medicine since the typhoon hit.
