As many as 10,000 people are believed dead in Leyte, a province in the Philippines, after strong winds and giant waves destroyed parts of the nation in one of the worst storms ever recorded.
Corpses hung from trees and were found along sidewalks and near demolished buildings, the Associated Press reports.
Typhoon Haiyan appears to be the deadliest natural disaster on record in the Philippines.
People on the ground in the Philippines shared their stories on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. WARNING: graphic content.
"On the way to the airport we saw many bodies along the street," Philippine-born Australian Mila Ward, 53, told the AP. "They were covered with just anything — tarpaulin, roofing sheets, cardboards."
She said she passed "well over 100" dead bodies along the way.
