When Typhoon Yolanda hit Southeast Asia one year ago, Pamela Weisman found herself in its path. The Columbia native and 2011 Mizzou graduate was in Tacloban, Philippines, working with deaf students, honing her sign-language skills and living with a host family through the nonprofit organization Volunteer for the Visayans (VFV).
Typhoon Yolanda, also known as Typhoon Haiyan, was one of the strongest and deadliest tropical cyclones ever recorded. On Nov. 8, 2013, it devastated parts of Southeast Asia and killed more than 6,300 people in the Philippines. More than 4 million people were displaced by the storm, and 2 million still are without adequate housing. Organizations such as VFV and Unicef continue to offer help.
