Super Typhoon Rai: Philippines faces aftermath

At least 375 people are now known to have died after a powerful storm struck the Philippines on Thursday, police say.

The BBC’s Howard Johnson is on Siargao Island, which is almost cut off to aid because of the devastation.

The Red Cross says there is “carnage” in many areas, with no power, no communications and very little water.

Thousands of emergency personnel have been deployed to help the relief operation.
