Coordinating the massive typhoon relief effort

A massive relief operation is just getting into gear across the Philippines. At least one truck headed to hard hit Tacloban had to turn around after it was surrounded by desperate storm survivors. So many of the hardest hit areas remain cut off from rescue, relief and even communication with the outside world. Philippines Red Cross Chairman Richard Gordon talks to Anderson about the effort to deliver supplies to hard hit Tacloban.

    We have a son on Panglao Island. It appears they will be the last to receive aid, although lack of power and water is a real problem there as well.
    We are alarmed by the lack of organized sites for food, water and shelter for the thousands of people needing help. Would it not be possible to erect "tent cities" to provide aid to these people in Manila or other less impacted cities so they can have the aid needed on a real time basis if Tacloban is beyond help.
