Officials in the Leyte province of the Philippines said they feared that at least 10,000 people could have been killed by Typhoon Haiyan.
Haiyan is one of the most powerful storms ever recorded.
Leyte’s capital Tacloban bore the brunt. Residents, many of whom have no homes to return to, struggled without clean water or electricity and little food.
The deadly storm is now nearing Vietnam, where forecasters predict it will make landfall on Monday morning. More than 500,000 people have been evacuated from high-risk areas.
The heavy rain generated by Haiyan has already arrived. According to Vietnamese media, six people have been killed in flooding in central provinces.
