When Rosemarie Arante, recalls surviving 2013’s Typhoon Haiyan — one of the most difficult experiences of her life — the emotions are still raw.

“I don’t want to see… to remember…” she trails off as tears well up.

Typhoon Haiyan, known locally as Super Typhoon Yolanda, was a Category 5 storm that hit the Philippines in 2013. With winds at more than 150 mph, Haiyan is still considered one of the most powerful typhoons of all time.

The aftermath was devastating for the 14 million people impacted. Over 4 million people were displaced and 6,000 people died. The livelihoods of nearly 6 million people were lost or disrupted.
