Typhoon Philippines Death Toll

Typhoon Philippines Death Toll, A day after Super Typhoon Haiyan roared through the Philippines, officials predicted that the death toll could reach 1,200 — or more.

“We estimate 1,000 people were killed in Tacloban and 200 in Samar province,” Gwendolyn Pang, secretary general of the Philippine Red Cross, said of two coastal areas where Haiyan hit first as it began its march Friday across the archipelago.

The Red Cross said it would have more precise numbers Sunday.

The government’s official toll as of Saturday evening was 138 dead, 14 injured and four missing.

But experts predicted that it will take days to get the full scope of the damage wrought by a typhoon described as one of the strongest to make landfall in recorded history.

“Probably the casualty figure will increase as we get more information from remote areas, which have been cut off from communications,” said Tomoo Hozumi, UNICEF’s Philippines representative.
