Relief operations are now underway up as the massive devastation and loss of life is being measured in the Philippines after super Typhoon Haiyan hit. Bodies littered the streets as it is feared at least 10,000 people have been killed. The Desperation hit new heights on Tuesday as survivors now struggle to access help.

Forensic workers now have the grueling job of identifying the thousands of bodies. Over 600,000 people have been displaced, with no access to food, water or medicine.  International aid is also coming in from all parts of the world including the U.S and Britain. In addition the many countries and organizations are pledging to raise millions of dollars in aid.

The rescue efforts have however been halted because of the severe damage to the roads, airports and bridges. The full extent of the damage can now be seen after the region was torn up by surging waves and winds of 195 mph. Over 10 million people have been affected by this disaster, which stands as one of the worst Typhoons seen in history.
