Typhoon Haiyan (locally known as Yolanda), the strongest typhoon ever to hit the Philippines, made landfall in Central Philippines on Friday, 8 November 2013, with winds of up to 235 kph and gusts reaching 275 kph.

It made initial landfall in Guiuan (Eastern Samar), cutting across Visayas, Leyte, Cebu, Bantayan, Panay and northern Palawan, before heading out to sea, west of the Philippines. Affected areas include the hardest-hit Tacloban City in Leyte province; Guiuan (Eastern Samar) where the storm first made landfall; the northern tip of Cebu and Bantayan Island; Negros Occidental and Oriental; Panay, and Palawan. Other affected areas include, but are not limited to, the provinces of Northern Samar, Samar, Southern Leyte, Bohol, Guimaras, Masbate, Biliran, Romblon and Mindoro.

The humanitarian impact of the typhoon has been massive, due to the deadly combination of powerful winds, heavy rain and tsunami-like storm surges which wiped out a number of coastal towns and cities, most notably Tacloban and communities along the coast south of Tacloban on Eastern Leyte.

Although the actual impact of the typhoon varies from one affected area to another, the overall effect has been the same: families torn apart, buildings and infrastructure destroyed, livelihoods and crops ruined and whole communities disrupted.

The massive storm surge (up to 7m) caused damage in the eastern seaboard, while in other areas there are widespread wind damage. The Manila Southwoods Golf and Country Club together with Fil-Am Golf and Resorts World provided emergency assistance to the affected population. Click on the links below for their final reports.
