Tacloban, a city that is home to 200,000 people, suffered the greatest devastation, said Lt. Jim Aris Alago, information officer for Navy Central Command. Officials initially found more than 100 bodies scattered on the streets of the coastal city, and that death toll was expected to rise dramatically.
