Survivors 'walk like zombies' after Philippine typhoon kills estimated 10,000
By Manuel Mogato TACLOBAN, Philippines (Reuters) - One of the most powerful storms ever recorded killed at least 10,000 people in the central Philippines, a senior police official said on Sunday, with huge waves sweeping away entire coastal villages and devastating the region's main city.

"People are walking like zombies looking for food," said Jenny Chu, a medical student in Leyte.
