The death toll from one of the strongest storms on record that ravaged the Philippines could reach 10,000 people, officials said Sunday after the extent of massive devastation became apparent.

Typhoon Haiyan caused widespread devastation in the Philippines, particularly on Samar Island and Leyte, where at least 10,000 people were feared to have died in the city of Tacloban (Pop. 221,174).

The thirtieth named storm, thirteenth typhoon, and fifth super-typhoon of the 2013 Pacific typhoon season, Haiyan originated as an area of low pressure east-southeast of Pohnpei in the western Pacific Ocean on November 2.
