Religious gather, typhoon much on their minds

 | 

Women religious from throughout Asia began to gather here over the weekend as the nation -- and wider world -- was awakening to the vast devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan.

The typhoon, with winds closing in on 200 miles per hour and causing waves more than a story high, ripped through the central section of this nation on Friday, causing widespread destruction, displacement, and some 10,000 deaths.
