Typhoon Haiyan: Filipino Americans on devastated home town

19 November 2013 Last updated at 01:26 GMT

More than 3.4 million Americans trace their ancestry to the Philippines, according to the 2010 US Census, making Filipinos the second-largest Asian-American group in the US.

And the biggest group of Filipinos outside of the Philippines can be found in California. The community there is behind a massive fundraising effort to get relief to family and friends back home devastated by Typhoon Haiyan.

The BBC met a group from the Tacloban Association of Southern California who are raising money to help rebuild their hometown.
