It’s being called one of the largest storms ever recorded.

People in Hastings aren't just sitting around and watching the storm's aftermath.

The Salvation Army immediately began collecting funds for relief efforts.

100 percent of the gifts and money they receive marked "Typhoon Haiyan" will go straight to the Philippines.

For years, the Salvation Army has had a strong presence in the Philippines.

Salvation Army teams will be deployed throughout the coming weeks.

The Hastings branch says they'd love to be a part of that.

"It impacts me deeply. It ruins my heart. It brings me to tears,” Major Abe Tamayo said. “I pray for them. And just ask that people join with us now in response to start that healing process."

Donations can be made at http://www.TSAHastings.com or at 1–800–SAL–ARMY.

That information is at the bottom of your screen and it will be on our website as well.
