TACLOBAN, Philippines (AP) – A provincial official says another 300 people have been confirmed dead on Samar (‘sah-MAR) Island in the central Philippines in the onslaught of a super typhoon.

That’s in addition to 10,000 people believed to have died in Tacloban city on Leyte Island, just across Samar.

Leo Dacaynos of Samar province’s disaster office said Sunday that 300 people have been confirmed dead in Basey town and another 2,000 are missing.

He says the storm surge caused sea waters to rise 6 meters (20 feet) when Typhoon Haiyan hit Friday.

There are still other towns on Samar that have not been reached.
