U.S. Send Help to Philippines

(KCEN) -- The United States rushed assistance to the Philippines after a typhoon killed almost one thousand people.

The International Red Cross says it's reasonable to estimate that 10,000 people may have died as a result of the storm, but those numbers have not been confirmed.

The U.S. Government aid - both military and civilian - began flowing as relief efforts got under way by international organizations and private relief groups.

At least 90 U.S. Marines and sailors arrived in the Philippines as part of a first wave of promised U.S. Military assistance, which included aircraft for search and rescue operations.
