CBC's Andrew Lee is one of several journalists who have been staying at the airport and captured images of what life is like for those holed up in the impromptu shelter.
Tacloban was one of the cities hit hardest by the typhoon, which killed at least 3,900 people and displaced several million. No building in the city has been left untouched, and piles of debris and downed trees lie everywhere, including in and around the airport, which is itself damaged.
Residents of the city of about 200,000 people who have not managed to leave have had to seek shelter either at the airport or in tents and shelters set up by relief organizations.
