The Red Cross Helping Victims of Typhoon Haiyan
Published November 9th, 2013
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- It's been only two days since super typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines. The 200 MPH storm left entire towns flattened.
The Red Cross is reporting more than 1,200 people dead, and they are expecting that number to rise.
The North Central Florida Chapter of the Red Cross is collecting financial donations to send to those effected. They are also helping local families get in contact with family members in the Philippines. "If people have loved ones in the Philippines that they want to get in contact with, they can do an inquiry, submit a form and get their information out to their loved ones and make sure they're okay" said Bianca Esprit, a Red Cross Spokesperson.
