​Typhoon Haiyan’s fourth anniversary shows long-term impact of storms

1 Nov, 2017

Four years ago on 8 November, Typhoon Haiyan – one of the most destructive tropical cyclones ever recorded – hit Southeast Asia, killing more than 7,000 people and leaving an estimated $2.8 billion worth of damage.

Stuart Rivers, CEO of international charity Sailors’ Society, which has helped rebuild communities in the Philippines, said: “This year, the world has seen the horrific damage caused by hurricanes Irma and Maria. Unfortunately, from our experience with Haiyan, we know storms like these can have a terrible effect for years to come.

“Four years after Haiyan destroyed vast areas of the Philippines, millions of people still suffer from the loss of loved ones, homes and jobs.”
