Seeking Safety

Description

More than 1 million people evacuated coastal areas of the central Philippines ahead of Typhoon Hagupit during December 2014.

Families rushed to safety amid threats of high winds, flash floods and landslides. Evacuation proved essential in preventing casualties.

Coming as it did little more than a year after devastating Typhoon Haiyan, Typhoon Hagupit prompted most in its way to avoid jeopardizing their lives in insecure locations.

As part of its Haiyan recovery work during 2014, World Vision provided training for children and adults in disaster preparedness, which included detailed information on evacuations.
