The true scale of Super Typhoon Haiyan can be seen from the air.
The town of Guiuan is situated on a spit of land in the southeast of Samar Island.
The town was severely damaged by the super typhoon, and aid may take several days to reach the survivors.
Guiuan is to the east of Tacloban and saw some of the worst conditions of the storm.
The city was devastated by winds of approximately 300 kph, and a storm surge of over 5 metres.
Although the residents were advised to evacuate, a number of people stayed to protect their homes.
The storm surge that pushed across land was like a tsunami, and bulldozed everything in its path.
After the flood waters recede, everything is coated with a thick film of mud.
With their homes destroyed, survivors assemble makeshift tents whilst they wait for help on Victory Island, near Guiuan.
It will take many more days before aid finally starts to trickle through to all those who are in desperate need of help.
