PHILIPPINES -- At last count the death toll from a devastating typhoon in the Philippines has risen to more than 4,400 according to the United Nations.

More than 544,000 people have been displaced and nearly 12% of the population affected.

President Obama says U.S. Military personnel and relief workers are on the ground to help the victims get access to food, water, medicine and shelter.

He says the USS George Washington aircraft carrier is aiding recovery efforts and "more help is on the way."
