As many as 10,000 people are believed to have died in one Philippine city alone when one of the worst storms on record sent giant sea waves, washing away homes, schools and airport buildings. Ferocious winds ravaged several central islands, with the eastern city of Tacloban the worst affected. Eyewitnesses have reported seeing people buried under tons of debris and corpses left hanging from trees. Regional police chief Elmer Soria said he was briefed by Leyte provincial governor Dominic Petilla and told there were about 10,000 deaths in the province, mostly by drowning and from collapsed buildings. The governor’s figure was based on reports from village officials in areas where Typhoon Haiyan struck on Friday. Report by Ashley Fudge.
