WORST TYPHOON EVER KILLS OVER 10,000

Typhoon Haiyan, potentially the world's worst typhoon in recorded history, flattened Tacloban city (above) in Leyte province, central Philippines, and killed at least 10,000 people here alone. Authorities said the toll would rise further as they were yet to make contact with Guiuan, a town of 40,000 first hit by the typhoon, while another, Baco, was 80% under water. Most of the deaths appear to have been caused by surging sea water strewn with debris that many said resembled a tsunami, levelling houses and drowning hundreds of people. In Tacloban, where little infrastructure remains, residents queued up for food, water and medicines or looted warehouses while mobsters raided trucks carrying aid. "People are walking like zombies looking for food," said a medical student in Leyte. Headed for Vietnam, the typhoon weakened as it crossed the South China Sea and is expected to hit land late Sunday night or early Monday morning |
