The deadly devastation in the Philippines as a result of the Typhoon has reportedly caused 25 hundred deaths and many surviving victims are pleading for help and assistance as looting and lawlessness takes over.

Public safety officials are guarding stores to prevent people from hauling off food, water and such non-essentials as TVs and treadmills, but there is no one to carry away the dead in Tacloban, the worst-hit city along the country's remote eastern seaboard.

Typhoon Haiyan has now made landfall in Vietnam, days after thousands are feared dead and widespread terror in the Philippines.

The region has most recently been hit by two other typhoons. Wutip and Nari were both category one storms, which flooded roads, damaged sea dykes and tore the roofs off hundreds of thousands of structures.
