TYPHOON HAIYAN: DEATH AND DEVASTATION

Typhoon Haiyan slammed the Philippines with a storm surge two stories high and some of the fastest winds ever measured in a tropical cyclone - 195 mph as clocked by U.S. satellites. The death toll is estimated at 10,000 and continues to rise. Cities and towns along the coast have been devastated. The destruction of infrastructure has prevented the delivery of medical supplies, clean water and needed aid. More than 11 million people are estimated to have been affected by the storm.
