    Wikipedia says that the Tacloban City airport (DZR) was “completely destroyed” by a 13′ storm surge. While the terminal building did in fact suffer heavy damage, Philippine newspapers reported DZR was open to turboprop aircraft on Monday, Nov. 11. Philippine military C-130 and civilian Philippine Airlines flights to DZR started that day. It should be pointed out that the DZR runway is located a few meters away from the high tide mark, and it’s official elevation is listed as three meters (10 feet).
