Tacloban, Philippines ? Humanitarian workers and military troops from around the world converged Thursday on the Eastern Philippines, racing against time to rescue and feed those devastated by a horrific typhoon.

The horror is everywhere thanks to what was Super Typhoon Haiyan when it came ashore six days ago, packing winds 3.5 times as strong as Hurricane Katrina, pushing in a wall of water 15 feet high and washing away towns on many islands.

The death toll from this calamity stood at 2,357 on Thursday morning, with more than 3,800 injured and 77 people reported missing. There?s every expectation the number of fatalities will rise, though no one knows how much.

Reaching all the victims and assisting the survivors ? including more than 2 million people in need of food, according to the Philippine government ? are both priorities now.
