Clean water sparse in Tacloban

Residents in typhoon-hit Tacloban city on Wednesday (November 13) dug out water pipes from underground and smashed them in a desperate bid to get water. People queued up near a water source in downtown Tacloban which had been flattened by Super Typhoon Haiyan when it hit the country on November 8. The most powerful storm ever recorded destroyed power and communication lines, leaving the coastal city of 220,000 without power, water and communication. About 660,000 people have been displaced and many have no access to food, water or medicine, the United Nations said. The official death toll stood at 1,774 on Tuesday.
