Typhoon Haiyan caused widespread destruction in parts of the Philippines when it tore through on Friday. One of the hardest-hit areas was the city of Tacloban and its more than 220,000 residents. “Virtually all of the structures, if they were not made out of concrete or steel, are gone,” a top U.S. military commander said.
