My country was devastated by Super Typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda last November 8, 2013. It pummeled the Visayas area in central Philippines. See map for affected areas.
I live in Iloilo City. It's on Panay Island, northwest area of the map. Though the city suffered minor damage, the north area of the island was severely affected. People lost their sources of livelihood, homes and even loved ones.
