Bodies in the streets, a plague of looters and 10,000 dead in one city alone: Filipinos struggle to cope with huge typhoon that was ‘like a tsunami’
by Becky Evans, Richard Shears and Sophie Jane Evans, Daily Mail:
Super-typhoon Haiyan struck with such force that entire villages were flattened, ships were swept inland on a sea of debris and corpses were left hanging from coconut trees after the waves receded.
Even as families began to grieve for their dead, they faced a grim battle to find shelter and forage for food and clean water amid the devastation.
Dazed survivors walked the streets ‘like zombies looking for food’ while looters rampaged through shops and mobs attacked aid trucks loaded with food, tents and water.
Residents of Taclon have spoken of the impact the storm is having on survivors, who have been left without food or shelter.
