See the Philippine City of Tacloban One Year After Supertyphoon Haiyan

TIME

Supertyphoon Haiyan became the strongest storm on record to make landfall when it crashed into the eastern Philippines on Nov. 8 last year, with wind speeds exceeding 300 kph and a 7-meter storm surge. The city of Tacloban, provincial capital of the Eastern Visayas, bore the brunt of its devastating power and was practically destroyed.

Photographer Chris McGrath documented the death and destruction immediately following the typhoon. One year later, he returned to capture the same scenes, painting a picture of a city that, at least on the surface, has returned to some semblance of normality.
