Tacloban, a city in mourning

One week ago, Typhoon Haiyan nearly leveled the city of Tacloban. Today there are still bodies in the street. The stench is overwhelming, and so is the sadness. Anderson checks back with some of the storm victims he met earlier this week.

Click here to watch Anderson's previous report from Tacloban.

    How can we fight Mother Nature? When she gets violent and angry, no one is safe.My country is unlucky/blessed,( however you may see it) that it is sitting smack on Mother Natures' backside.With all the bounty and beauty from nature,we also get it's unpredictable,destructive side.I don't know if anyone could have predicted it would be this catastrophic.My heart goes out to everyone who were affected and my only wish is not to see this happen again.

    This is a very touching video showing the real situation of those victims from typhoon Haiyan..I really cried hard and can't imagine how people will deal with their lives after losing their loved ones, their properties, and their future. I really hoped that Tacloban and those areas affected by the super typhoon will begin to pick the pieces of their lives and start rebuilding their future. Thank you Mr Anderson Cooper for coming up with such tremendous and touching reports about my fellowmen Filipinos. You are such a nice person and through you we were able to dig in of what's life after the storm in Tacloban. Thank you and more power to you!

    Long suffering Filipinos survived several catastrophic natural disasters such as earthquakes , volcano eruptions, typhoons, never mind extreme poverty, but adding to that is unending corruption to further annihilate the country's moral fiber. Can't find another word to describe other than "resiliency", that is an understatement. "Immunity" comes to mind other than prayer, to ward off hell!

    You did a tremendous job to bring the whole truth to the world and for encouraging worldwide aid. The media in Philippines is seems controlled by the government. In my local area in Kalibo, Aklan beside the International airport where ny mother lives, the local Barangay Captain or local government official had discriminated my mother on their list of victims and for food aid for the reason that my my mother has a daughter living abroad. The roof of our parental home was blown away. Her daughter living and working abroad supports three families which the local politician is not aware of. My mother has complicated medical issues. This is not the first time my mother was bullied and did not receive any aid when catastrophe comes.
