The terrible destruction of Typhoon Haiyan

One of the most powerful storms ever recorded ravaged the Philippines over the weekend

Typhoon Haiyan rocked the Philippines over the weekend, completely leveling the coastal city of Tacloban. Not one building escaped the storm's wrath, and of the 220,000 residents, officials say at least 10,000 people were killed.

While dazed survivors pick through the splintered wreckage and scavenge for sustenance and comfort, aid from the U.S., Japan, and several nearby countries is being deployed.

To get an understanding of the devastation, here are a series of photos of the storm and its aftermath.
