Tacloban Revisited

© FRANCE 24

On November 8th, 2013, Typhoon Haiyan tore through the Philippines. Waves over 5 metres high battered Tacloban. In just a few hours, the capital of Leyte Island was razed to the ground. Six months on, despite administrative delays and the fear of another typhoon, the inhabitants are getting organised. But reconstruction will be a long process. France 24 returned to the stricken coast to meet the survivors.
