As many as 10,000 people are feared dead in one city alone after Super Typhoon Haiyan — one of the most powerful storms ever recorded — slammed into the central islands of the Philippines.
Less than a month ago, on Oct. 15, 2013, the country is hit by 7.2 earthquake.
Casualties of the destructive earthquake, which hit Bohol the hardest, stood at 487—with 393 from Bohol, 89 in Cebu, 3 in Siquijor, and one each from Iloilo and Negros Oriental.
It added that the tremor, which recorded 1,846 aftershocks since Friday, has affected and displaced 695, 466 families, which is equivalent to more than three million persons.
The damage wrought by the earthquake to roads, bridges and flood control in the affected areas reached over P500 million, with P525 million recorded in Bohol, P23.15 million in Cebu, P1.45 million in Siquijor and P250,000 in Negros Oriental.
