Evacuees await help

Survivors of the typhoon wait for help in Tacloban. Philippine authorities said they were able to evacuate about 800,000 people before the typhoon swept ashore on Friday. People crowded into storm shelters but even some evacuation centers were flooded, sending evacuees scrambling for higher ground.
