Despite major logistical challenges, the ICRC team has reached the coastal communities of Eastern Samar, where Typhoon Haiyan made its first landfall. Renewed heavy rain and deteriorating security – armed gunmen and looting have been reported – are making matters worse for an already exhausted population without shelter, food or drinking water. The ICRC and Philippines Red Cross will deliver desperately-needed aid in the coming days.
