HONG KONG-PHILIPPINES-WEATHER-TYPHOON

A local man fishes as the aircraft carrier USS George Washington sails out of Hong Kong on November 12, 2013 to join the rescue and relief operations in the Philippines following Super Typhoon Haiyan. US and British warships were deployed on November 12 to the typhoon-ravaged Philippines where well over 10,000 people are feared dead and countless survivors are begging for help in rain-soaked wastelands. Four days after Super Typhoon Haiyan destroyed entire coastal towns in mostly poor central islands with record winds and tsunami-like waves, the magnitude of the disaster continued to build with almost unimaginable horror.
