AP PHOTOS: Typhoon devastates Philippines
A weakened Typhoon Haiyan made landfall in northern Vietnam early Monday and was downgraded to a tropical storm as it entered southern China later in the day, but the damage and death tolls appear nothing like the havoc the storm wreaked upon the Philippines on Friday. Despite an official death toll of just over 250, authorities there fear it could climb to 10,000 or more. At least 2 million people in 41 Philippine provinces are affected by the disaster, with tens of thousands of houses wiped away, decomposing bodies under twisted rubble, and survivors struggling to find food and clean water. The United States, United Nations and Red Cross are among those donating supplies.
Here’s a gallery of images depicting the typhoon’s aftermath.
