Typhoon Haiyan Survivors Face Little Relief After 3 Days In [Video]
The Latest updates on Typhoon Haiyan over in the Philippines are as followed: In one Philippine city of 200,000, bodies lie by the side of the road, and the health of survivors is in jeopardy. One survivor says it’s “worse than hell”. People in Tacloban, Philippines, pass debris left over from Typhoon Haiyan on Monday, November 11. Haiyan, one of the strongest storms in recorded history, laid waste to the Philippines. Officials say that as many as 10,000 people may have died in the storm.
CNN reports: “You can see them everywhere. On the side of the road. Under what appears to be a bus shelter, a jaunty ‘I (heart) Tacloban’ sign hanging overhead. Lined up on sidewalks. Bodies — some crudely covered, others left exposed to the burning sun — added another hellish element to survival in Tacloban on Monday, three days after Super Typhoon Haiyan flattened countless buildings and claimed untold lives. ‘There are too many people dead,’ said Richard Gordon, chairman of the Philippine Red Cross. “We have bodies in the water, bodies on the bridges, bodies on the side of the road.
Troops and aid organizations battled blocked roads and devastating damage Monday to deliver help to stranded Filipinos struggling to survive the powerful storm’s aftermath, even as another tropical system moved in to deliver more unwanted rain. Survivors rooted through the splintered wreckage of their homes searching for loved ones who may be buried beneath. Others scrambled to find food and water.”
