Super Typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda has left a path of devastation in the Philippines. Communication channels are not yet re-established to many areas, but current reports indicate as many as 10,000 deaths, with fears of many more casualties yet to be assessed. Several hospitals, along with thousands of homes and schools have been damaged or destroyed, and hundreds of thousands left homeless - many with long term shelter needs.
The international community is rallying to respond, and teams are already on the ground from the UN, local and international NGOs as well as disaster experts from the US, Australia, and the European Community.
