Devastation in East Asia
The scale of the dev­as­ta­tion and the des­per­a­tion wrought by one of the most pow­er­ful storms ever to buf­fet the Philip­pines came in­to much clear­er view on Mon­day, three days af­ter it hop­scotched across the coun­try’s mid­sec­tion whip­ping up mon­strous walls of sea­wa­ter. Sur­vivors spoke of peo­ple be­ing swept away in tsuna­mi-like tor­rents, their corpses strewn among the wreck­age of the storm, Ty­phoon Haiyan. Pho­tos from the hard-hit city of Tacloban showed vast stretch­es swept clean of homes, and re­ports emerged of peo­ple who were des­per­ate for food and wa­ter raid­ing aid con­voys and strip­ping the stores that had been left stand­ing.
