    by Al Jazeera English via YouTube on 9:59 AM

    Al Jazeera's Wayne Hay, reporting from Tacloban, said that the city is in absolute disarray.

    "People are still searching for missing friends and family members," he said, "and for any food and water they can get their hands on."

    He reported that the military is arriving at the destroyed Tacloban airport and bringing some supplies, but that it is "clearly still not enough".

    "One of the biggest problems is shelter, and those military planes have been taking a very small number of people away to other parts of the country," but most people have been staying in makeshift shelters in overcrowded Tacloban schools and sports stadiums, he said.
