Typhoon Haiyan: Aid ship going 'as fast as it can'

A US aircraft carrier has set sail for the Philippines to accelerate relief efforts after Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the coast.

The crew of the USS George Washington and four other navy ships, including the missile cruiser USS Antietam, will take two to three days to reach the worst hit areas.

Captain Thomas Disy: "We're going to go as fast as we possibly can and get there as soon as we can to help people in need."

Juliana Liu reports.
