Recovery slow after Philippine storm damage

Sunday marks two years since Typhoon Haiyan struck the country, leaving a trail of death, destruction, and displacement.

Leyte – Sunday marks two years since Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful storms on record, made landfall in the Philippines.

The storm, which struck between November 2 and November 11, 2013, killed more than 6,000 people and displaced millions more.

Philippines President Benigno Aquino earlier budgeted about $3.9bn in funds for recovery efforts.

At least 21,000 homes needed to be rebuilt in Leyte, but two years on only around 500 houses have been complete.
