MANILA (Nov. 9) — CARE and its partners are responding to the needs of families affected by super typhoon Haiyan, which has torn a path across central Philippines, affecting an estimated 10 million people.

More than 790,000 people have been evacuated because of the typhoon, with heavy rains, storm surges and winds of up to 170 miles per hour battering central Philippines since Friday. CARE Philippines’ disaster reduction advisor, Celso Dulce, said information was beginning to come in that indicated the extent of destruction caused by Haiyan.
