At least 10,000 people are believed dead in Tacloban city alone after one of the worst storms ever recorded hit the Philippines with ferocious winds and giant waves.
Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) appears to be the deadliest natural disaster on record, packing winds of 235 kilometers per hour (147 miles per hour) that gusted to 275 kph (170 mph), and a storm surge that caused sea waters to rise 6 meters (20 feet).
Corpses hung from tree branches and were scattered along sidewalks and among flattened buildings.
Death toll could climb even higher when emergency crews reach areas cut off by flooding and landslides.
