In a midst of a humanitarian crisis like the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, information on the disaster pours to and from the media. The situation is in flux and the needs are great, and troubling fragments of news drop in continuously from on-the-ground reports, government briefings, humanitarian responders and social media. It’s often incredibly difficult to answer the basic questions: How many victims? How much destruction? Who will help pay for the emergency response and help with the recovery? Who has already donated money and resources?
