Tacloban Typhoon Building, Having experienced typhoon Haiyan, Save the Children aid worker Lynette Lim says every single building she’s seen in Tacloban has been affected

Tacloban, Philippines: A church spire, its cross hanging loose, looks down on smashed houses, wrecked cars, toppled power lines and snapped trees, as dazed survivors try to count the cost of Typhoon Haiyan.

“I think the boy saved my life because I found strength so that he can survive,” said one survivor.
