A Filipino woman cries while air force soldiers try to hold back residents from entering the airport while a military C-130 plane prepares to take off at the airport in the super typhoon devastated city of  Tacloban, Leyte province, Philippines, 12 November 2013. Aid workers and relief supplies were being poured into eastern provinces hit  by Typhoon Haiyan, which aid agencies and officials estimated has left thousands dead and staggering destruction in its wake. The US will send an aircraft carrier and other Navy ships along with 20 million dollars in emergency humanitarian aid to the Philippines. Thousands were feared dead in Leyte and nearby Samar province, as police and disaster relief officials said at least 552 were confirmed killed, mostly drowned by tsunami-like sea waves that flattened towns.
