Super typhoon Yolanda hit the Province of Capiz and Roxas City in the afternoon of November 8, 2013, after earlier hitting land in Tacloban City and cutting a swath of destruction in that city.

Here is a map of the path of the super typhoon):

If you look closely at the map, Super typhoon Yolanda made its way through Panay (particularly by Cuartero, Capiz) and left a trail of destruction in Capiz.

Here is the best real-time (as it happened) description of the path of the super typhoon that I found in the Internet:

We will know the full extent of the damage wrought by Super Typhoon Yolanda in the next few days (as communication is restored).
