Central Philippines devastated by Typhoon Haiyan

[Updated Nov. 17, 2013] TACLOBAN, the Philippines — In the chaos after Typhoon Haiyan, Malou Cabiao had lost all track of time. It was only when she heard church bells ringing that she realized it was Sunday.

Rain poured through blown-out windows and gaping holes in the roof, soaking the broken pews. Worshipers opened umbrellas and lifted their voices in song.
Survivors of one of the worst storms on record, many of them homeless and grieving lost loved ones,  sought solace Sunday at ruined churches in Tacloban and other hard-hit cities. More than 80% of the country’s 100 million people are Roman Catholic, a legacy of Spanish colonial rule.

[Updated Nov. 14, 2013] WASHINGTON — The aircraft carrier George Washington and four other Navy ships in Leyte Gulf in the Philippines on Thursday were preparing to begin relief operations for survivors of Typhoon Haiyan, Navy officials said.

Rear Adm. Mark Montgomery, the commander of the George Washington Strike Group, said the carrier and cruisers Antietam and Cowpens will take up positions off the east coast of Samar island “to begin to assess the damage and to provide logistical and emergency support, including medical care and water supplies,” according to a Pentagon news release.

[Updated Nov. 13, 2013]  MANILA — Five days after Typhoon Haiyan ripped through the central Philippines, panic was spreading Wednesday across the disaster zone and residents were resorting to increasingly desperate measures to stay alive.

Eight people were crushed to death when a huge crowd stormed a rice warehouse near Tacloban, one of the worst-hit cities, local authorities said. More than 100,000 bags of rice were carted away in the melee, according to local news reports Wednesday.

Elsewhere, residents dug up underground pipes and smashed them open to get water.

MANILA — Four days after Typhoon Haiyan blew away their homes and livelihoods, most Philippine victims — in far-flung flooded coastal communities — have so far been unable to obtain assistance, aid workers say.

The United Nations on Tuesday launched an appeal for $301 million to help victims, and U.S. and British warships headed toward the region.
