Survivors reel from typhoon Haiyan’s devastating damage
Super typhoon Haiyan killed at least 10,000 people in the central Philippines, according to a senior police official, and destroyed about 70 to 80 percent of structures in its path.
As rescuers struggled to reach villages along the coast, survivors foraged for food or searched for lost loved ones.

“People are walking like zombies looking for food,” a medical student in Leyte told Reuters. “It’s like a movie.”
Most of the deaths appear to have been caused by surging sea water strewn with debris that many said resembled a tsunami, leveling houses and drowning hundreds of people in one of the worst disasters to hit the typhoon-prone Southeast Asian nation.
