You can read a report from the Bishop:
Jonathan Navacilla send a note to tell us that our prayers are appreciated
Just want to express my thanks to all of you who prayed for us! We were hit by a strong typhoon today but we are safe! Praise the Lord! While we are still on recovery from the earthquake, now we had the typhoon. But thank The Lord for His sufficient grace! God bless you and our brothers in NZ!

Doctors in Tacloban said they were desperate for medicine. Beside the ruined airport tower, at a small makeshift clinic with shattered windows, army and air force medics said they had treated around 1,000 people for cuts, bruises, lacerations and deep wounds.
“It’s overwhelming,” said Air Force Capt. Antonio Tamayo. “We need more medicine. We cannot give anti-tetanus vaccine shots because we have none.”
The longer survivors go without access to clean water, food, shelter and medical help, the greater chance of disease breaking out and people dying as a result of wounds sustained in the storm.
