A woman from Cambridge says awaiting news from her family in the Philippines and watching the disaster unfold on television is a living nightmare.
Jennelyn Carter-Woodrow has just found out her family, who live in Tacloban, has survived Typhoon Haiyan, but she says the biggest worry now is getting food, water and medicine to survivors.
She's managed to speak to her mother who says the community in which she grew up is completely destroyed.
