Local Relief Effort Involves Ties to Philippines
November 13, 2013 — Typhoon Haiyan, known as typhoon Yolanda in the Philippines, was one of the strongest recorded storms to make landfall in the world. Philippino authorities are still trying to grasp the impact of the storm, which struck the island nation last week.
International relief agencies are coordinating efforts to meet the needs of survivors. One of those agencies is the Philippine Nurses Association of America, Inc.
Elena DeJesus is president of the Northwest Indiana chapter of the association, and she joined Kristyn Estes on Lakeshore News Tonight to talk about the group and its relief effort for typhoon victims.
