At least 100 dead in typhoon Haiyan

Philippines, Nov 09 (ANI): Typhoon Haiyan, possibly the strongest storm ever to hit land, was barrelling out of the Philippines on Saturday after it flattened houses, triggered landslides and floods and knocked out power and communications across a number of islands. In the central Philippines, nearly all houses in Tacloban in Leyte province with a population of about 220,000, were toppled and casualties were feared to be massive, a disaster official said. At least 100 people may have died from the impact of super typhoon Haiyan, a senior government official said on Saturday. Nov 9, 2013
