Philippines — Typhoon Haiyan Displacement Report (14 April 2014)

14 Apr 2014 Philippines Round 6 Download

Typhoon Haiyan hit the Philippines on 8 November 2013. It was one of the most powerful typhoons to ever make landfall. In the reporting period DTM recorded the presence of 24,867 displaced individuals (5,545 families) and 61 displacement sites (4 evacuation centers, 14 tent cities, one spontaneous site and 42 transitional sites). One evacuation center was closed in the Tacloban Hub namely the Streetlight Building Evacuation Center and no additional sites were opened at this period. A big concern is the Tacloban Hub is the search for land where transitional shelters could be built so that the tent cities like those found in Barangay 88 can be closed. Several options have been found and shelter cluster partners together with CCCM cluster partners are being asked to provide funds to construct transitional shelters.
