A Philippine police officer obtains drinking water from a hand pump as he prepares to make morning coffee at their makeshift camp, which is also a provisional home for a local family, near the airport in the eastern Samar town of Guiuan November 20, 2013. Authorities estimate more than 3,900 people were killed when Typhoon Haiyan, one of the largest ever recorded, made landfall in the central Philippines and the sea surged ashore. Philippine authorities, the U.S. military and international agencies face a mounting humanitarian crisis, with the number of people displaced by the catastrophe estimated at four million.
