Typhoon Haiyan One Of The Most Powerful Storms In Tacloban City (71 pics)

In This Typhoon 10,000 people are feared to have been killed in just one Philippines' city by super typhoon Haiyan - one of the most powerful storms ever recorded. Haiyan destroyed about 70 to 80 per cent of the area in its path as it tore through Leyte province on Friday and huge waves swept away entire coastal villages, police chief superintendent Elmer Soria said. As rescue workers struggled to reach ravaged villages along the coast, where the death toll is as yet unknown, survivors foraged for food as supplies dwindled or searched for lost loved ones. 'People are walking like zombies looking for food,' said Jenny Chu, a medical student in Leyte. 'It's like a movie'. Haiyan is now moving west towards Vietnam, where 883,000 people in 11 provinces have been moved to safe zones.
