Five days after Typhoon Haiyan, looting broke out at a rice warehouse in the Philippines. For some of the 600,000 displaced people, international aid is arriving but not being distributed quickly enough.
Typhoon Haiyan is strengthening as it approaches the Philippines, with wind gusts of 162 mph, the equivalent of a Cat. 5 hurricane. Typhoon Haiyan is the strongest tropical cyclone in the world this year.
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.
