TACLOBAN, Philippines (Reuters) - Rescue workers struggled to reach ravaged towns and villages in the central Philippines on Monday as they tried to deliver aid to survivors of a powerful typhoon that killed an estimated 10,000 people and displaced more than 600,000.

It's only a super storm if it hits major cities in the NE US. Otherwise, it's just a normal powerful storm.

I believe that number will drop substantially. This is a very sad even nonetheless but initial estimates are always inflated greatly to garner more aid and to up viewership of the aftermath coverage.

That thing made Katrina look like a tropical storm i would not be surprised if death toll reached that high or higher.

That's to show the scale of the size of the storm.

You are blind if you believe that is the only purpose behind that graphic. Why not choose any other arbitrary landmass or ocean to illustrate the scale of the storm? It was done to illicit donations from Americans.

Estimate 10,000. Final death toll 1,100.

That's usually how it works. Still sad though.
