Typhoon destroys the Philippines

A super typhoon has hit the Philippines leaving around 300 people dead.

Typhoon Haiyan battered the country over the weekend with winds of more than 200 miles an hour.

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

Rescue teams are heading to the most remote parts of the Philippines to help those in need.

New Zealand has sent $150,000 in aide.

Experts in the Philippines think that the death toll may rise to 10,000 people.

If this figure is correct it will become the country’s deadliest recorded natural disaster.

Meanwhile, a provincial official says another 300 people have been confirmed dead on Samar Island in the central Philippines.
