    TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) - The relief effort in the Philippines has barely begun. As many as 10,000 people -- and perhaps more -- are dead as a result of the typhoon that struck on Friday.More >>

TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) - It's apparently just as tough getting into the hardest hit areas in the Philippines in the wake of the killer typhoon as it is to get out.
    
There are medical supplies, pallets of water and food waiting to be delivered, but of the millions of victims, few have gotten any help yet. And of thousands who mobbed the airport in Tacloban, only a few hundred were able to board outbound planes.
    
Most residents of the hardest hit city of Tacloban  spent the night under pouring rain - either in the ruins of their homes or in the open along roadsides and damaged trees.
