Day 5 into Philippines crisis, extent of damage still unknownListen /
As aid trickles in to survivors of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, people are doing what they can to survive, according to the UN Refugee Agency's Representative, Bernard Kerblat.
Tacloban city in Leyte province, one of the hardest-hit places, has no electricity, according to Mr. Kerblat, therefore only military aircrafts can land at the airport, slowing down relief efforts.
UNHCR was the first aid agency to land a humanitarian cargo at Cebu international airport, the first of a series of five planes carrying non-food items and emergency supplies such as blankets, plastic sheeting and tents.
Mr. Kerblat shared with UN Radio's Jocelyne Sambira the extent of devastation caused by the disaster.
