Typhoon Haiyan: Families bracing for the worst

Some of the areas hit hardest by this storm are completely cut off from outside communications. Families around the world are waiting to hear from loved ones. Anderson spoke with Katsy Borromeo-Chiongbian who is in Chicago and has been unable to reach her relatives in the Philippines.

    I would like to thank you on reporting on the typhoon in the Philippines. I would like you to continue in your reporting on the Philippines as you have seen the true point within the reporting you did. A story of kindness and how a government and a few control wealth and the lifes of people in there country. As I was told donations are great but going out to the people is poor and small as long as the government continues to be the middles man. People can never move forward even in the best of times. I know people are still not recieving food and water in leyte as I have been told directly from people there. Spam comes from other countrys and maybe a can of sardines might come out of that to the people.

    I seem to see alot of coverage in the city of Tacloban in the Philippines. I have to say it is disappointing. As I can tell you a fact I have 18 family members not more then 5 towns away that can get no help or relief of any kind. that houses are gone people have died and all relief goods are in Tacloban where people can not get them. I do not understand why helicopters are not dropping water and food in some of these areas. No roads are clear to get into Tacloban and there is only one hospital open and it is over run and located in Tacloban. I have been told the government seems to be just waiting for the international community to respond. As there people are dieing and starving. I is very disturbing to think this. I know the kindness of all there citizens and to find out the government is not responding to help. Please they need your help.

    I have family in an area outside of tacloban called mandelisid beside auboyg. 18 members that are running out of food and have no water. There homes are destroyed. ages from 2-70 years old. There seems to be relief good yes in tacloban as I watch on tv from here in the US. When will they be able to help others outside of the city? People are dieing well they wait I can not believe relief goods can not be dropped from helicopters to out laying area in order to save people.
