9:01 am
both here in the united states and around the world, as well. >> it is so disturbing. decomposing bodies are literally everywhere. destruction stretching across towns and villages on i land after island all in the philippines. desperation and despair is now setting in those communities. >> people struggling to grasp the enormity of the devastation left by hiaiyan. have a look at this. >> oh, my god. >> unbelievable pictures. authorities now estimate as many as 10,000 people were killed killed in the powerful typhoon. the official toll stands at 942.
9:02 am
today it the philippine president declared a state of national calamity. >> as you heard, worse than hell is how one survivor describes the situations in in the philippines. the damage quite simply is c catastroph catastrophic. >> andrew stephens was in the path of the storm. he's done incredible reporting from the city of tacloban. he was in a hotel and helped rescue a family. here's his dramatic account. >> this is what the of center of a typhoon looks like, winds slamming into a city. a white haze of screaming noise smashing windows, tearing metal, water and flying debris. just minutes after we had he finished our line of shots telling headquarters we were moving to safer ground, the
9:03 am
camera man brad shot this in the place we just left. >> okay, guys. i think we can wrap it up. >> as the destruction there continued, a floor below terrified residents huddled together finding protection against the flying spray and mind numbing noise, some praying for their safety. we're sheltering in the corridor. it's a relatively secure area i think where we are is a very substantial hotel. we are away from windows. but all around us, you hear the sounds of windows breaking and large objects crashing to the floor. and under foot, it is now just eight deluge. if you look behind me, i don't know if you can see it, the staircase behind me is now basically a water fall.
9:04 am
>> and then a torrent of blackwater began pouring into the hotel. the storm surge had begun. >> go upstairs. >> within a few minutes, it was a ground floor window level. a panicked family now trapped in their roop smashed the window and screamed for help. we managed to get the mother across to safety using a foam mattress and it immediately became clear the cause of her panic. their daughter was severely disabled. storm chaser josh and i went back across to get the terrified girl to safety. and cnn producer tim schwartz helped rescue the rest of the family. the waters only rose a little higher. the height of the storm, in fact, had passed. two hours later, the winds had lost their lethal strength. our live position was a ruined shell. but as we walks outside, it was immediately clear that so much
9:05 am
of the city had suffered so much more than we had. and even four days after that storm struck, we still don't have a clear understanding, any real understanding at all, michael and suzanne, just how widespread this damage is, how many towns, how many villages have been hit like tacloban, and the fact that we haven't heard from them means they're not getting any sort of support at all. these are going to be the critical issues in the coming days. michael, suzanne? >> and we also know there is no electricity. there's no food, there's no water for tens of thousands of those storm survivors. you can add to this homes that are simply obliterated washed away. hospitals who are now overrun with patients, and want to go live to the philippine capital of ma anyone la. >> cristy stout has been there reporting, as well. something we were discussing on international earlier, one of the difficulties here is the philippines is dozens and dozens of islands, there's a lot of
9:06 am
remote islands that rescuers have not seen yet. they've got no idea how bad this is at the moment, is that right? >> reporter: that's absolutely true. now, my colleague, ivan watson had an opportunity to fly with the civil aviation authority here in the philippines to have a look at the entire area of devastation, the entire storm zone. if there could be a little bit of good news, there was a lot of concern about the western region of the eastern va sigh yas part of the philippines, concerned there would be many people in need there. it turns out that that area not as hard hit as many people feared so the focus of the relief operation is definitely on sumar province and tacloban sti. it is 1:00 a.m. in the morning here and there are no inflights going into tacloban city because there is no power to light up the runways so pilots cannot i'vely land and bring badly
9:07 am
needed relief there. that might change very soon. u.s. marines arrived on monday bringing c-130 aircraft with them. aid, as well as a plan to make the airport there operational on a 24-hour basis. even at this time of night, 1:00 a.m. in the morning, the aid can keep coming in. also on monday, the philippines sent in special forces providing aid and also to provide law and order because there are a lot of concerns about security and lawlessness there. when you talk to survivors and this is an account i'm hearing from pal la hancocks and andrew stephens on the ground in tacloban city, they are increasingly frustrated and say what they are experiencing is worse than hell. doctors say they can't go on because they don't have the supplies that they need. let's keep in mind, this storm made landfall on friday. it is now almost four days since the storm made landfall. so this community, entire
9:08 am
population, they have been closed off from the rest of the world for four days now. they need food, water, they need medicine, they need shelter and they can't wait any longer. back to you. >> and christie, i imagine, as well, it's estimated 10,000 people might have the perished because of this. the official count much, much lower. as you mentioned, an is they found more people who have been isolated for four days, that that number could get much, much bigger. >> reporter: that's right. there are concerns that that number can get much bigger. look at the lay of the land alone. the population of taco ban city is about 220,000. an interior minister said about 1 million people were living in low lying areas of the storm zone. so the potential for devastation among the population there is very, very high. but at the moment, what we're hearing is this. the philippine government is saying over 600,000 people displaced. according to the philippine
9:09 am
armed forces, they're saying the death toll right now is over 900. but the red cross of the philippines say they fear 10,000 across the entire storm zone. back to you. >> thank you so much. just to get a sense how desperate people are in need of help here, you see this man here painting a message on a basketball court in the hard hit city we have been hearing about all morning, are it reads help, s.o.s., we need food. >> dazed survivors wandering the streets having to scavenge for food, water or medicine. relief workers still struggling to reach a lot of people. look at the ship tossed up by the storm surge, which was huge. a lot of people didn't expect the storm surge to be that bad. 600,000 people at least displaced by the storm. i saw a figure earlier that some 4 million children have been impacted in some way by this.
9:10 am
of course, one the of the risks with a storm like this and you get water sources that are compromised and disease is a big fear for a lot of the rescue workers there. >> that's why they expect the death toll will increase. just to give you an idea how powerful this typhoon was, haiyan, watch this. many experts believe that the typhoon haiyan could be the strongest tropical cyclone to ever make landfall in recorded history. it was 3.5 times more forceful than hurricane katrina, which was a category 33 hurricane, superstorm sandy's winds stretched a further distance but were only half as powerful. >> in fact, the winds from typhoon haiyan were stronger from those from hurricane sandy and katrina combined to give you a sense how big this was. after slamming into the
9:11 am
philippines, haiyan was downgraded to a tropical storm but then headed to vietnam. it is now weakening over southern china. >> let's bring in chad meyers from the weather center to look where the storm is now. where is it heading, where did it land and what do we expect next? >> it went over hanoi into south china and it's just about done. there is an more moisture and warm water where this storm came from and another storm is trying to develop on this storm's heels. november 6th, all of a sudden this storm becomes a monster, 195 gusting to 235, rolls right through the islands there. kind of turns to the right. we thought it would make land fal in vietnam. missed it all together. there it is right now where the rain showers and a little bit of flooding taking place right now. there's still convection but not like it was. this is now five days from where it actually made landfall. >> six dead in vietnam despite
9:12 am
is not hitting direct as you said. a hugely deadly storm. tell us what's following up now. it's obviously not as big. but there's rain. >> it's not as big but it still has the potential to do a lot of damage with wind, even 45 miles per hour. you look at all the sticks and stone that are everywhere. a 45-mile-per-hour wind gust can pick up plywood, the corrugated sheet and throw that around even though it's not anything like this. the biggest storm that caused the most damage ever was typhoon thelma, 1991. killed between 5,100 and 8,000 people. they don't know how many people it killed. this could be the aim idea where we think we'll get a number like 2001. there could be a range of thousands of people because there are so many people still missing in remote villages. we haven't talked about all these other big towns, 20,000, 30,000 people in these big
9:13 am
towns. that's why we're talking about tacloban because we can get there. >> dozens of islands the rescuers haven't gotten to yet. chad, thanks so much. on this many hour of "around the world", we're talking about no food, shelter or electricity. that is the reality for many who survived the typhoon. now people are desperately looking for aid. >> plus, a sign of hope amid all this devastation. look at that, that baby was born at tacloban airport in a makeshift hospital. a ray of hope perhaps. we'll be right back. twins. i didn't see them coming.

9:17 am
aid is just beginning to arrive in the hardest hit areas of the philippines slammed by that typhoon haiyan. american c-130 military planes started to touch down at the tacloban airport today. >> desperately needed. those planes were not able to come till three days after the storm because the runways had to be cleared. and actually as night falls they're not able to operate because the lights aren't working on the runway. the u.s. military is going to take over airport operations and set up up radar and lighting so that the airport can operate 24/7 going forward. >> the real problem trying to get all the aid you see there to the people who are absolutely desperate at this point. the airport is nine miles from the city center. many roads still clogged with huge chunks of debris, fallen power lines from the storm. it is a very dangerous
9:18 am
situation. more than 600,000 people have been displaced by the storm. they are desperate at this point. >> just imagine hundreds of thousands of people, look at this, look at that devastation. many of the people used to live in those structures and now are wandering the streets. many having to sca veg for food because the storm wiped out their homes. everything else. listen to how one victim described the situation. >> get international help to come here now. not tomorrow, now. this is really, really like bad, bad, worse than hell. worse than hell. >> and the international red cross says it is realistic to estimate 10,000 people may have been killed in the storm, and they're saying that about one district actually. right now, the official death toll is 942. that's the official toll. as we say, rescuers haven't even reached entire towns, islands
9:19 am
believed absolutely leveled by the typhoon. >> joining us now to talk how victims are coping with all of this, it is hard to imagine how, with the aid group care. you see that woman. you hear the desperation in her voice. she is at her breaking point here. and you've got many, many people who i imagine are at that point. how do you help them? what is the most important thing at this moment for them? >> at this moment, the main needs that they are trying to -- we are expressing are emergency food, water and shelters as well as medicines. a lot of communities have not been reached yet. we have teams in the field and they're on the ground doing needs assessment and they haven't been to their communities and it's completely deb stated. >> still no idea really of the
9:20 am
extent of this four days on. one of the things that must be concerning aid groups and we saw in the video there, bodies literally lying in the street. no way of burying them at the moment. a lot of them under the rubble. that raises the prospect of disease, of course. not to mention tainted water supplies, wells and the like. what do you do about that? how urgent is that side of things? >> it's very urgent. people have been running out of food stocks and water. for now, they're able to -- they are able to utilize the potable water, whatever it's left in their homes and communities. and they are saying that they do not know after a couple of days, they do not know where they would get food, where they would get water and they would have to resort to fetching water everywhere wells, from springs
9:21 am
that are unsafe. and you are correct. there are many bodies, perhaps lying on the ground. there's really a need for mass casualty management because it will be a health hazard for the survivors. >> and we know that hundreds of thousands of people were actually able to escape typhoon. you've got to imagine they're probabliable in dire straits too because they don't have a home to come back to. it looks like pretty much what they left behind is destroyed. who is taking care of them? >> for now, some of the people are in evacuation centers, but unfortunately, even the evacuation centers designated to them have been destroyed by the typhoon. our colleagues on the ground are saying that people are really trying hard to start rebuilding their homes, getting from debris
9:22 am
whatever's left, whatever they can -- they can use, what they can get their hands on. >> thank you. >> so people are trying to survive, yes. >> miss talavara thank you so much for what you do. it is just so important. you can only imagine, these are the times when people help people, when it really matters. >> a lot of aid groups working there. you can check out a lot of what's going on on our website, a lot of these aid groups listed there have been vetted by cnn. you know anything you give will be going to a good cause. of course, in cases like this, what these groups need is cash. nothing else. they just need the money to make it happen, get the goods there. >> if you can do anything, please help. families around the world are now searching for loved ones. the devastation is so bad that authorities don't even know how
9:23 am
many are missing. >> up next, we'll hear from one family searching online for any sign of their sister. social media playing a role in tracking people down. we'll have that when we come back.
9:24 am
9:25 am
9:26 am
typhoon haiyan knocked out power and communications across the philippines making the search for loved ones very
9:27 am
difficult and trying. many family members living outside the are feeling helpless. calls, texts, e-mails are all unanswered. >> google is helping to make some of those connections a little easier with its person finder. they set up a similar online tool after the devastating earthquake in haiti. this, would in a similar way. meanwhile, others are turning to social media web sites like facebook and twitter posting pictures of missing loved ones. steve knee lamb talks with one family hoping the internet will help them locate their half sister. >> it's sickening. >> since the typhoon hit it, nino and his sister marie have been looking for any sign that hair half sister is alive. >> i want it to be daylight over there so at least we get more progress. we get more news. >> the family believes she rode

9:29 am
constantly swapping with her brother. he's safe in manila. >> construction is strong but it has only a ground floor, and it's really close to the water. >> des vite the high number of people that may have died, he remains optimistic. >> how is the hope level within your family? >> it's high. we believe in divine intervention and we believe that she made it. >> stephanie elam, cnn, los angeles. to some other stories now making news around the world and the u.n.'s nuclear watchdog agency and iran just announced what they're calling a framework for cooperation. the joint announcement comes one day after the talks between the iranian government and six world powers, those geneva talks. britain's foreign secretary says there will be no letup in sanctions on iran till a deal is reached on its nuclear program.

a man who doesn't stand still. but jim has afib, atrial fibrillation -- an irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. that puts jim at a greater risk of stroke. for years, jim's medicine tied him to a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but now, with once-a-day xarelto®, jim's on the move. jim's doctor recommended xarelto®. like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce afib-related stroke risk. but xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. that doesn't require routine blood monitoring. so jim's not tied to that monitoring routine. [ gps ] proceed to the designated route. not today. [ male announcer ] for patients currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto® and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. xarelto® is just one pill a day taken with the evening meal. plus, with no known dietary restrictions,
9:34 am
jim can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto®, rivaroxaban, without talking to the doctor who prescribes it as this may increase the risk of having a stroke. get help right away if you develop any symptoms like bleeding, unusual bruising, or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto® and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions such as kidney, liver, or bleeding problems. xarelto® is not for patients with artificial heart valves. jim changed his routine. ask your doctor about xarelto®. once a day xarelto® means no regular blood monitoring -- no known dietary restrictions. for more information and savings options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit

the president of the philippines has declared a state of national calamity. this it is just days after his country was slammed by one of the strongest storms ever, ever recorde recorded. >> authorities estimate as many as 10,000 people were killed in friday's super typhoon haiyan, although the official death toll stands at 942. today, countless survivors are just going through the splintered wreckage of their homes sifting through it searching for loved ones who might be buried beneath. others, they are simply scrambling to find food and water in areas that are littered with dead bodies.
9:36 am
>> by any definition, this is catastrophic devastation. people now struggling to grasp the enormity of what they have been through, what they have lost and the challenges they now face. anna coren takes us to a remote area particularly hard hit. >> above the vast blue sea that separates thousands of islands that make up the philippines, a rescue mission is under way. we're traveling with the military to a remote group of islands devastated by super typhoon haiyan yet to be reached by authorities. from the air we can see the carnage, home after home, village after village, nowhere has been spared. on the ground, lie the injured with broken bones and interm bleeding. they've been waiting for days for a medical evacuation. >> we haven't seen anything like this before. i thought i'd only see this on television. >> there's a real sense of
9:37 am
desperation here on the ground. the focus is obviously on the sick and injured and getting them to safety, the people of this hard hit island need food and fresh water. they've been without it for days. despite an assurances from the government, it is yet to arrive. the problem facing authorities is logistics, getting the supplies to these hard hit and remote areas and to the people who need it. this airfield in sa cebu has become the staging ground for the relief operation. c-1309 hercules fly in survivors shell shocked from what they've lived through. >> i cannot see anything yet. i'm in shock. i'm so sorry. >> a lot of people are dead. our friends are dead. some of our family members are dead. it's really devastating. >> as the death toll grows by the day, families here desperately wait for news of loved ones. >> i am the only survivor of the family and i want to know them
9:38 am
if they are still an. >> having had no contact since the typhoon hit, many say hope is all they can hold on to, anna coren, cebu, the philippines. >> people watching the levels rise hoping the water wouldn't get too close to their homes, one i-reporter will tell us what that harrowing experience was like. coming up next. to all the veterans... no longer in uniform, but still serving... on the job and in our communities... whose dedication and commitment to excellence continues... in every mission, whatever it may be... affecting our lives every day... for your continued service, we salute you. this message of appreciation

a tornado just passed us, and the tornado lasted for four hours. hotel was just crumbling. you know? i mean at first it was the ceilings that went off. and then the roofs just started to fly in all directions. and then the water just started coming. >> can you imagine? those scenes of devastation we've been seeing from the philippines are indeed shocking and heartbreaking and for people who live there, very difficult to imagine what they've gone through. >> this one man watched a river near his home rise and rise and rise. i-reporter mark snapped some of the pictures of muddy waters rushing by cebu and joining us now by phone. first of all, tell us, what are you seeing where you are? days after. just extraordinary pictures of
9:43 am
flooding. >> basically i was at home, and the moment that the radio announcer was telling that the river near our village is overflowing, we immediately went out of our house and checked how's the river, and it was really overflowing. the trees beside it was like they're already gone. and it was just horrible. the wind was so strong. the rain was so strong. there's like a big reservoir at the top part of the river. and it's what makes us very frightened because the more rain had come, the more water will overflow, and our vil will be wiped out if that will be happening just horrible. >> markey have to ask you this. i know so many people there lost their lives.
9:44 am
how did you survive this? >> we survived because probably there are things that are coming in -- i mean, the typhoon was coming and then we were just prepared for it. and it's just so unfortunate that there are some places in our country that how prepared they were, but and the safest place that they were able to be evacuate but still, they were adrift of the typhoon. i mean and that's just so sad. >> and mark, we've seen the damage in tacloban. and cebu is also a place that was pretty hard hit. what is it like there now? are people getting the help that they need? and what is the damage like in cebu? >> well, right now, the relief
9:45 am
effort is on its way. one of the problems really right now is the transportation since we are a group of islands and reaching one island to the other is really one of the hardest things. and what makes it really worse is that even land you cannot reach in those areas because there are debris around. there are airports but runways are not working. debris is around. so it's just so hard to reach in those areas but the government right now are working very hard to reach in those areas. a lot of government organizations are also helping. and we need help right now and i'm appealing to the world. if you know, to help my fellow countrymen and if you know, my voice will be the only thing to help them, then i'm appealing to the world right now. they need like food, water, medicine and most of all, we
9:46 am
need everybody's prayers. >> yeah. mark, thanks so much. mark there in cebu. and you know, a lot of people talk about the four days later they still don't have the this critical aid. they knew the storm was coming. why is it taking so long? gettin from island to island to island, no roads, no airports, it's tough to get that stuff around. >> i covered hurricane katrina and it was devastating. you look at this, something of a magnitude you cannot believe. you can't get your head wrapped around this. we wish mark the very best. he says it's his voice. his voice getting to the rest of the world to seek food and shelter. if you're one of those people who can actually help the folks in the philippines impacted by the storm, we want you to check out the website here. see how you can lend a hand. we can all make a difference here. >> amid the chaos, a moment of
