The Philippines was hit by a typhoon in November 2013, many lost their families, homes and friends. The typhoon — considered by some to be among the strongest such storms to make landfall — struck the Philippines on November 8. Its powerful winds and enormous storm surge smashed buildings, destroyed roads and caused widespread power and water outages. The damage was particularly severe in the Leyte province city of Tacloban, which suffered a direct hit from the storm and enormous devastation.
