The Disaster in The Philippines (Super Typhoon Haiyan)

The super typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda), one of the strongest storms in history, has caused massive devastation in the Philippines. The death toll is estimated between 1000 and 10.000 and up to hundred thousand people may have lost their homes:

The city of Tacloban is one of the worst hit, some parts of the city have been totally destroyed:

I have friends and loved one in the Philippines so this tragedy has somehow impacted me strongly. They are fine but they are very shocked of what has happened to their country and it has impacted to their lives in other means also.
Its really sad to see there scenes from there
I know that the people there are certainly strong..but one does not wish something like this to anybody or for any nation.
My best wishes to the Philippines and my deepest condolences to those who have lost a loved one there.
