Pictures of Typhoon Haiyan’s Wrath.

November 18, 2013 Pictures of Typhoon Haiyan’s Wrath: While hard-hit urban areas in the Philippines are finally getting adequate supplies to stave off hunger and thirst, the region’s rural hinterland has been largely left to fend for itself in the week since Typhoon Haiyan barreled through with winds up to 190 miles per hour. Palm trees were snapped in half (above) by the winds in Guiuan, on Samar Island. Typhoon Haiyan, which cut a destructive path across the Philippines on Friday, is believed by some climatologists to be the strongest storm to ever make landfall, with winds of at least 140 m.p.h. and a storm surge as high as 13 feet. Thousands are feared dead or missing. The storm has upended the lives of millions, as shown in the following photographs.

The town of Tanauan, south of its better-known neighbor, Tacloban, was devastated by the storm surge from the typhoon.

Bodies were placed in a mass grave on Thursday in Tacloban, six days after the city was largely destroyed by a typhoon.

Rotting bodies have created a powerful stench in the city of Tacloban, where as many as 10,000 people were feared dead and most residents were struggling to get basic foodstuffs and water four days after Typhoon Haiyan struck.
