The death toll from one of the strongest storms on record that ravaged the central Philippine city of Tacloban is feared to reach 10,000 people.

The typhoon barrelled through six central Philippine islands on Friday, wiping away buildings and levelling seaside homes. Most of the deaths and destruction were on Leyte Island, where Tacloban is located.

The estimates are based on the extent of massive devastation that the typhoon has left behind.

The deaths are generally being attributed to drowning and from collapsed buildings. Already, about 300-400 bodies have been recovered.
