Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the central Philippines on Friday, killing at least four people, forcing hundreds of thousands from their homes and knocking out power and communications in several provinces.
A day after a powerful typhoon killed nearly 300 people in the southern Philippines, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies issued an urgent appeal for money to aid survivors.
Officials estimate 280 people have died as a result of Typhoon Bopha, which made landfall Tuesday. Flooding and mudslides have affected most of the countryside in the Compostela Valley. The typhoon caused power outages and ruined roads and bridges.
