Typhoon relief effort shows signs of progress

Six days into the Typhoon Haiyan disaster, there are some signs of progress in the Philippines. Aid flights are landing in hard hit Tacloban, and supplies are beginning to reach desperate survivors. Bodies, which were left in the streets for days, are finally being collected. Paula Hancocks takes a look at the progress being made, and how much more needs to be done.

Anderson spoke with Brigadier General Paul Kennedy who is leading the American relief mission in Tacloban.

    I can' t agree more on people's take on this feud between Anderson Cooper and Corina Sanchez in regards to the slow response by the Philippine administration to the typhoon disaster. CNN and AC was on the ground reporting as it happened and there is no better way to report the truth than that.Corina Sanchez took a lot of heat from her fellow countrymen because she's basically saying to the millions of suffering Filipinos that " no it didn't happened that way ". No need for CNN to explain their position on their honest reporting, that' s just my take on it. Mabuhay!

    @AC360 Just wanna thank you for reporting about the condition of our country. I'm very glad that at last there's a little bit progress about the relief operations in different parts of Visayas region. As a Filipino, I wanna thank you for giving courage and fighting spirits for all the victims of the typhoon Yolanda/ Haiyan by showing the world the strength of every people out there in the typhoon and how they deal the debris they are facing right now. How they survived the aftermath. Thank you so much. God bless. "Maraming Maraming Salamat (Thank you very much in Tagalog language)."
    Also thank you so much to all the countries who helped our country in relief operations and conduct medical services. I may not be one of the victims of the typhoon. But as a Filipino, I'm very happy and overwhelmed to all the countries helping the victims to survive this debris and giving them encouragement and motivation to start a new life in a positive ways.

    Thank you for Mr.Cooper seems like finally the Philippine government came to their senses that there should be sense of urgency. Thank you for standing beside the Filipino people at this difficult moment. THANK YOU USA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD. Please send my love to everyone who lost everything there. May they never lose hope and feel that we are all in this together.

    i agree with Mr. Cooper. it's totally true that the government doesn't have an organize back up support. he didnt mention that we dont have a government. Corina, how about going to the sight yourself and maybe you will be enlighten of whats been happening, instead of trying to criticize Mr. Cooper. We all know help from other countries arrived first before our very own.

    This is true! There could have been survivors who were just trapped but they died hopeless because the Government are not organized enough!
