News Wrap: Powerful Typhoon Haiyan hits the Philippines

  • Aired: 11/07/2013
  • 08:00
  • Expires: 12/07/2013
  • Rating: NR
In the news, Typhoon Haiyan reached islands in the central Philippines, bringing with it torrential rains and wind gusts nearing 200 mph. Meanwhile, the Defense Department reported that sexual assaults in the military rose 46 percent last year. It's unclear if this reflects an increase in assaults, reports, or both.
