Today marks two years since the second anniversary since the most powerful storm ever to make landfall struck the Philippines, killing more than 6,000 people and leaving millions without food, shelter or livelihood. Typhoon Haiyan ripped through the central Visayas region of the archipelago, smashing the city Tacloban in particular.
To mark the anniversary Tacloban City mayor Alfred Romualdez unveiled this weekend the Eva Jocelyn, one of four ships that ran aground on the coast on the morning of November 8, 2013.
The vessel, cut in half and encased in concrete, will serve as a memorial for the thousands who died, among them coastal residents faced with 7 m storm surges.
The ship is the subject of a documentary, which was released this January and is accessible here.
