Typhoon Haiyan: Remember to Pray for Philippine as 1000 feared dead

 
Around 10,000 people may have died in Leyte Island, one of the Philippines area hit by the devastation of Typhoon Haiyan, according to officials.
 
Neighbouring Island was also badly affected, with reports of 300 people dead and 2,000 missing. The Philippine government has so far only confirmed the deaths of 151 people throughout the country, but hundreds of thousands have been displaced.
 
 
Houses in Tacloban have been flattened by the massive storm surge that accompanied Typhoon Haiyan. There's no clean water, no electricity and very little food.
City officials said they were struggling to distribute aid and that looting was widespread.
The BBC Weather Centre says the typhoon is expected to make landfall south of Hanoi on Monday afternoon local time (between 03:00 and 09:00 GMT), although it will have decreased markedly in strength.

 The latest report from the Philippines' Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council confirmed 151 deaths as of 22:00 GMT on Saturday. It said almost 480,000 people had been reported displaced.
Thousands of troops have been deployed to the disaster zones. However, rescuers are struggling to get to remote areas, hampered by debris and damaged roads.
