Three days after typhoon Haiyan swept through the Philippines, troops and organizations from around the world are trying to help those struggling to survive. Officials worry as many as ten thousand people could be dead. Right now the death toll stands at 942 according to the Philippine Armed Forces central command. Food, water, and medical supplies are in short supply and residents are doing whatever they can to survive. The Philippine president has declared a "state of calamity", which allows more latitude in rescue and recovery operations. Meteorologists said it will take more analysis to confirm whether the typhoon set a record.
