Six months after Typhoon Haiyan devastated the Philippines, DW's Bastian Hartig returns to one of the hardest-hit cities, Tacloban, to see how residents are rebuilding their lives.
Nearly 15 thousand people were evacuated in anticipation of typhoon Koppu, which slammed into the northern Philippines on Sunday, forcing thousands more to flee their homes. As it made landfall, Koppu weakened slightly, but evacuations are on-going.
Typhoon Koppu has swept back out to the South China Sea, leaving catastrophic damage in its wake. Heavy rains and flooding pounded the Philippines' largest island, Luzon.
A powerful typhoon is likely to hit and linger over northern Philippines for many days, authorities have warned. Scores of people have been evacuated from the coastal areas in the face of approaching Typhoon Koppu.
