Dozens of Vermont nurses are headed to the Philippines to help victims of a deadly storm.

Last month, a typhoon tore across the eastern Philippines, killing thousands and displacing hundreds of thousands.

The Vermont Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals announced its first team of three nurses will fly out Sunday. The union raised more than $3,000 for the trip. Leaders say health care workers are hard-wired to respond to a need like this.

A total of 50 nurses have signed up to volunteer.
