Typhoon Haiyan: Voices From the Philippines

We speak to Filipinos about their stories of Typhoon Haiyan and its aftermath. Haiyan - one of the most powerful storms ever recorded on land - hit the coastal Philippine provinces of Leyte and Samar on Friday. On Tuesday, eight people died when a wall collapsed as thousands of survivors mobbed a food warehouse in the devastated city of Tacloban.

What do people across the Philippines think of their government's reaction to the Typhoon? Do they trust that aid will reach the worst-affected areas? And, now that communication is being restored, can they tell us more about what happened when the Typhoon hit?
