Tacloban, Philippines, on November 11

Aerial view of super typhoon devastated city of Tacloban, Philippines 11 November 2013. Philippine authorities appealed for calm after one of the world’s strongest typhoons left survivors desperate for food and water in areas devastated by the storm. More aid workers and relief supplies were being poured into eastern provinces hit by Typhoon Haiyan, which aid agencies and officials estimate has left thousands dead, and staggering destruction in its wake. Thousands were feared dead in Leyte and nearby Samar province, as police and disaster relief officials said at least 552 were confirmed killed, mostly drowned by tsunami-like sea waves that flattened towns.
