Speaking from Tacloban, one of the Philippine cities hardest hit by Typhoon Haiyan, Al Jazeera's Jamela Alindogan describes her experience in the eye of the storm and aftermath.
"At 4:45am local time, we started feeling the wrath of the typoon. We moved to the second floor, from there I could see roofs being blown away.
"In ten minutes the water started going up really quickly, and we were trapped, we in the hotel with the other guests, all stuck and had no where to go."
