There are many lists of survivors, and at least one list of the dead. Below is one Internet site with a survivor list for people in the Island of Leyte.<br />
<br />

<br />
Regarding what your boyfriend said before the storm that "he thought it would be like other storms", apparently he was not given enough warning. Just as there is a Richter scale for the intensity of an earthquake as measured by earthquake instruments on land, there is a Dvorak scale for the intensity of a typhoon while at sea as measured by satellites orbiting the Earth. Before landfall, typhoon Haiyan measured a record breaking 8.1 on the Dvorak scale, the highest reading ever made during 50 years of weather information collected by satellites. I hope that your boyfriend Jason Nodalo will someday appear on the survivor list above, and I hope that he is healthy enough to take the poll on the lower right hand side of that list regarding whether he had been given enough warning about the strength of typhoon Haiyan.<br />
<br />
The Philippine government has a list of the dead which will probably grow to 4,000 to 5,000 people. See http://www.gov.ph/crisis-response/updates-typhoon-yolanda/casualties/ .

Your island of Leyte, being on the windward side of the typhoon track, took the worst damage, but even further west where the damage was a little bit less severe, there is much damage that can be seen not to be repaired even though it is weeks later. See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-25119027 for an example of the extensive but slightly less severe damage further west. In that video, one can see that the British ship HMS Illustrious with its load of relief supplies of electrical generators and 100,000 kilograms of rice from Singapore was not enough by itself to solve more than just a few of the problems of the less damaged western islands of the Philippines. Some year, there will be another super typhoon, and after the recovery from super typhoon Haiyan, the politicians in the Philippines need to set aside a larger amount of rice and electrical generators and antibiotics and blood transfusion supplies and road clearing equipment in buildings strong enough to withstand a super typhoon, or else it will take just as long to recover when the next super typhoon comes. This is particularly true of your island of Leyte as well as the islands of Samar and Luzon, because those islands not only tend to get the strongest winds from typhoons, but are too far from the port facilities of Singapore to get much aid from there.

As of today 29 December 2013 there is still not residential electricity. They still do not have access to the Internet. This is much worse than you could imagine. Lifetime farmers are out of work. Businesses are destroyed Government workers are victims as well. The mayor doesn't even live there. She's left town she doesn't want living conditions like this. She has the nerve to say that they don't need any additional help. Who is she kidding with you like your pockets with gold?
