The Philippines is reeling in the aftermath of one the world's most powerful storms ever. Supertyphoon Haiyan ravaged the country's central provinces late last week, reportedly killing at least 10,000 people and displacing hundreds of thousands.
Among the worst-affected regions is the island of Leyte, which has a population of around 1.5 million people, where the powerful storm is said to have destroyed 70-80 percent of buildings in its path, according to police officers.
Many provinces were left without power and telecommunications remained compromised early Monday. Survivors were described to be in desperate need of clean drinking water and food.
The supertyphoon made landfall on Friday, causing sea waters to rise 20 feet, flattening homes and triggering mudslides.
On impact, Haiyan packed sustained winds of 147 miles per hour (mph), with gusts of up to 170 mph, making in comparable to a strong Category 4 hurricane in the U.S. and nearly in the top category of 5.
Here are scenes from the devastating disaster.
