We are currently responding to the Typhoon that has ravaged the Pacific. With sustained winds of over 145 miles per hour and gusts up to 170, Typhoon Haiyan is recognized as the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines this year. The storm affected 9.5 million people across 36 provinces. Meanwhile, 1400 evacuation centers are housing more than 330,000 people left homeless by this storm. This is a developing situation as many areas are still inaccessible to Philippine Red Cross workers.
