Hayan fa 10mila morti Tacloban (Filippine), 10 nov. (LaPresse/AP) - Le Filippine fanno i conti con le conseguenze del passaggio del tifone Hayan. Mentre il bilancio ufficiale delle vittime è fermo a centinaia di morti, si temono più di 10mila persone uccise nella sola città di Tacloban, nell’area più colpita. Difficile la conta dei danni, mentre molte zone sono isolate e le comunicazioni telefoniche interrotte. Il tifone di venerdì, con venti a 235 chilometri orari e folate di 275 chilometri orari, ha causato onde alte fino a sei metri e allagamenti che hanno portato via o abbattuto case ed edifici. Intanto, mentre i soccorsi faticano a raggiungere le vittime, si registrano problemi di sicurezza: i negozi vengono saccheggiati in cerca di cibo, carburante e acqua.
Il tifone, che ha colpito le Filippine con potenza pari a un uragano di categoria 4, quasi 5, secondo le categorie Usa, si sta spostando verso il Vietnam. Oggi si è indebolito a 166 chilometri orari, con folate più violente, e perderà ulteriore forza quando domani colpirà la provincia Thanh Hoa. Qui proseguono i preparativi. Circa 600mila persone che erano state evacuate dalla regione centrale sono tornate nelle proprie case dopo che Hayan ha cambiato percorso, dirigendosi verso le zone settentrionali del Paese, dove le autorità hanno iniziato ad allontanare quasi centomila persone da tre province.

The intrusion of technology on daily routine and culture has transformed both society and surroundings into a matrix of digitized matter. An undeniable dependency on the internet for navigation and information has motivated American artist Mark Dorf to examine the paradigm shift thorough a creative medium. He has created a series of images that reveal natural landscapes of forests and mountains intermingled with collage, 3D rendering, and primitive 3D scanning technology.
