Catastrophe in the Philippines Is Felt in LA

Hosted by

Aid organizations around the world are racing to the Philippines with food, water and clothing five days after Typhoon Haiyan struck that country. The estimate of fatalities is now 2000 or more, with tens of thousands injured and more than two million in need of food. With more Filipinos than anyplace in the world outside the Philippine Islands, Southern California has been hit hard. KCRW's Saul Gonzalez went to the Eagle Rock Plaza Mall, a popular spot for Filipino-Americans.
