Philippines typhoon: Canadian team reaches remote island

In addition to killing and injuring scores of people in and around the city of Tacloban, Typhoon Haiyan knocked down homes, damaged wells and fishing vessels in many difficult to reach communities in the Philippine archipelago.

As part of the international relief effort, Canadian helicopters and military personnel with the Disaster Assistance Response Team have been flying in aid supplies to some of the affected communities.

The CBC’s Susan Ormiston accompanied members of the Canadian military as they delivered aid to one remote Philippine island devastated by the powerful storm.
