Introduction

Before the typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) landed at Tacloban, the City is one of the most richest in the Visayas Region. Citizens in the City were abundant with Natural Resources, Good Local Economy run by good politicians who cared for their/her/his constituents. After the Disastrous Typhoon everything was gone, all they have right now is their faith, hope and pride to stand up again and rebuild homes, businesses although, they cannot bring back the lives of people they love which is gone during the devastating Storm Surge. Hence, in less than 24 hours of pounding with powerful winds and rains when Yolanda (Haiyan) stops, the Aftermath of the typhoon almost wash away the city in the Philippines Map.
