Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS George Washington move a pallet of fresh drinking water across the flight deck for delivery ashore in support of Operation Damayan in the Philippines in this November 15, 2013 picture provided by the U.S. Navy. The death toll from Typhoon Haiyan surged to about 4,000 on Friday, but the aid effort was still so patchy bodies lay uncollected as rescuers tried to evacuate stricken communities across the central Philippines. The nuclear-powered USS George Washington aircraft carrier and accompanying ships arrived off eastern Samar province on Thursday evening, carrying 5,000 crew and more than 80 aircraft.
