'Massive destruction'
as typhoon kills at least 1,200 in Philippines

Witnesses said bodies covered in plastic were lying
on the streets. Television footage shows cars piled
atop each other.

"The last time I saw something of this scale was in
the aftermath of the Indian Ocean Tsunami," said
Sebastian Rhodes Stampa, head of the U.N. Disaster
Assessment Coordination Team sent to Tacloban,
...referring to The 2004 Earthquake and Tsunami.

"This is destruction on a massive scale. There are
cars thrown like tumbleweed and the streets are
strewn with debris."
