A U.S. Navy MH-60S Seahawk helicopter, prepares to drop supplies at what’s left of Tacloban Airfield in Tacloban, Leyte province, Philippines, (November 14) in support of Operation Damayan,” the name of U.S. military relief and rescue activities in the Philippines. The helicopter in the photo above is assigned to Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 25.
Tacloban and the surrounding area were extremely hard hit by Typhoon Haiyan, with more than 2,000 reported dead and millions of Philippinos forced to flee their home as waters rose during Friday’s storm. Since the storm moved on, scarce supplies like food and water, have been coming into the Philippines at a pretty steady rate, but relief work around Tacloban has been hampered by the utter destruction of roads and other infrastructure. Thousands have been rendered homeless thanks to Haiyan.
