In the aftermath of Super Typhoon Haiyan, AirAsia Regional Head of Operations Improvement Stuart Michael Cross went on a different kind of island hopping: bringing relief supplies and evacuating survivors of the typhoon which wrought massive destruction and loss of lives across the Visayan islands of Central Philippines. Stuart narrates his experiences on this humanitarian mission.
However you call it – Haiyan, Yolanda, the most powerful super typhoon in history – its devastating effect on the Philippines is impossible to ignore. The catastrophe left no building intact in Tacloban, a city of 200,000 people, and over 10,000 are feared dead. Accounts of gale-force winds and rushing water as families are torn and homes are destroyed fill the internet in the typhoon’s wake.
