Typhoon survivors try to flee, as others return to devastated villages

Hundreds line up at Tacloban's ruined airport in the central Philippines, scrambling to get a flight out of the typhoon-hit city. Sixteen-year-old Justin Cabidog has been waiting all night, soaked by torrential downpours. (SOUNDBITE)(English) JUSTIN CABIDOG, TACLOBAN RESIDENT SAYING: "We have been here since yesterday early morning, we have nothing to eat and we're struggling and we don't have any energy." While aid has begun to reach more remote areas, people are still going hungry. These survivors took refuge in the city of Cebu when the typhoon struck. Many stocked up with provisions in Cebu and now are returning home despite the grim conditions. "Even if you have money," this man says, "There's nothing to buy back home. The stores are gone." A massive relief operation is finally kicking into gear and aid is slowly reaching the badly hit provinces. But aid agencies say it could take years to rebuild the shattered towns.
