Navy helicopters from the USS George Washington warship were dropping food and water supplies to isolated communities in and around Tacloban, Philippines, the city hit hardest by Typhoon Haiyan. Japan has already dispatched a 25 member medical team, and Tokyo has pledged $10 million in aid for tents, blankets, food and water. Troops are also being dispatched. Relief from Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Singapore, Israel and Australia has also arrived, but it wasn't clear if the assistance was making it to farther-flung communities also desperate for help. On the remote island of Bantayan, residents said they hadn't received enough local aid and hadn't seen any relief from international agencies.
