Two dead, five missing from cargoship hit by typhoon Haiyan

Two seafarers are dead, and five are missing after Chinese cargo vessel disappeared in typhoon Haiyan when it struck the southern Chinese island of Hainan.

Chinese news agency Xinhua reported that a Guangxi-registered cargo vessel had broken free from its mooring on 9 November in the port of Sanya and vanished at sea after the typhoon struck the port.

Rescuers found two bodies suspected to be seafarers from the missing in the vessel. Search and rescue operations were underway for five seafarers still missing.

The typhoon Haiyan has left more than 10,000 feared dead in the central Philippines, and pictures show vessels driven ashore flattening homes in in Anibong town near Bacolod city which bore the worst of the impact of the super tyhoon when it made landfall.
