NBC News chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman was reporting live on Friday, Nov. 8 in Bogo, Philippines after the cataclysmic Typhoon Haiyan struck that nation of islands on Nov. 8. Bogo is where the Israel Defense Forces set up their hospital, and began treating those in need. The IDF has named this “Operation Islands of Hope.”
