November 8, 2013 was probably the most terrifying day for all Filipinos. The threat of nature was at its strongest and it goes by the name Super Typhoon Haiyan (local name: Yolanda). The highest intensity of it was felt in the Visayas, specifically Northern Iloilo. It came with howling of winds and heavy rains. And, for a span of more or less 2 hours, people were holding on to their dear lives, hoping and praying that they would still be able to see the sun the next day.
