Transcript for Gunfire Erupts in Typhoon-Stricken Philippines
Aid workers trying to help people after the killer storm in the philippines are dodging gunfire as the scene becomes desperate. We're seeing a new look at the devastation in the before and after pictures. Entire neighborhoods, ceasing to exist after the monster typhoon struck. The death toll topped 2,200. But the hundreds of thousands left behind are fighting to survive. No food. No water. And abc's terry moran is now in the storm zone. Good morning, terry. Reporter: Hello, josh. The sun is going down on day five after the typhoon struck. And the exodus here continues. Thousands of people standing in the broiling sun, in the rain, through the night, hoping against hope, for a flight out. The people here are on the move. The lucky ones, boarding planes. Others, clogging roads, covering their faces from the ghastly smells. And some fleeing by boat. Mary rose has five children. And they're all sick, feverish, slack jawed, maybe from the filthy water. Yesterday, four days after the storm, her neighbor's baby died in a convulsion, because there was no medicine to bring down a fever. They don't have milk for them. Reporter: The philippine government is struggling to meet the challenges here. So, the u.S. Is doing most of the relief work. Flying in more than 100,000 pounds of plane. Bringing in more c-130 cargo planes. We talked to general paul kennedy, leading the u.S. Effort here. How does it make you feel? Makes me feel good to give back to people I've known for 30 years. It's nice to be able to help these folks. They have stuck with us through thick and thin. We ought to be doing the same. Reporter: There was gunfire in the city today and a food riot in a nearby province, as the desperation increases here and people don't get the aid they need. This place is becoming a tinderbox. Josh? Terrifying ordeal. Thank you, terry.
