An interesting story from Western Washington University about one of its professors:

"When Super Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful storms ever recorded, devastated the Philippines last November, it literally tore apart communities and challenged the country's ability to provide even the most basic needs - clean drinking water, food, shelter - to hundreds of thousands of its people.

"Western Washington University professor of psychology and international disaster researcher David Sattler traveled to the island nation over winter break to investigate how this unprecedented storm, and others like it, affected the collective mental health of the nation's people.
