Aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan

Rescue teams are heading to the most remote parts of the Philippines after the country was hit by one of the most powerful storms ever recorded.

Typhoon Haiyan battered the islands with winds of more than 200 miles an hour.

Buildings have been destroyed, there were landslides, and whole streets have been left underwater.

Aid agencies are offering as much help as they can to those in need.

We know at least 100 people have died and it's feared that number will rise.
