Deadly Typhoon Haiyan, which has cut of power and communications to huge swaths of the Philippines, is also worrying members of Toronto's Filipino community. Locals haven't been able to reach family in the affected area.

At least 100 dead after the typhoon, and nearly 750,000 were forced to leave their homes. The devastation prompted immediate action from aid groups in Toronto, including Canadian aid group Global Medica, CBC's Aarti Pole reports.
