Residents walked passed damaged houses in Tacloban City, after it was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan that slammed into Tacloban City, Leyte province Philippines as seen on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2013. AP Phoro/Bullit Marquez.
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.
Below is the video of ABS-CBN News’s reporter Atom Araullo reported live at around 6:40 a.m. Friday from a street in Tacloban City during Typhoon Haiyan, which is also called Yolanda in the Philippines.
The video was aired on the ABS-CBN’s morning show “Umagang Kay Ganda” as well as on ABS-CBN’s flagship newscast “TV Patrol.”
The video showed a bad flash flood caused by storm surge brought by Typhoon Haiyan on the street where Atom Araullo had been reporting from just an hour before.
It shows the flooded street turned into a river full of debris.
