RENO -- With millions affected by the typhoon that hit the Philippines, some Nevadans are worried about their family and friends.
"People are crying," local international market operator Vicky Ordinirio said. She said the home where two of her sisters lived was damaged. "There's no roof anymore and they can not stay in the house because it's really cold," she said.
Ed Bonayon of Cafe de Manila said some of his in-laws have not been heard from since the typhoon hit. "My heart goes out for them," he said.
The American Red Cross said it is helping people connect with loved-ones in the wake of the disaster. "They'll need to provide information and we're working directly with those partners of the Red Cross to ensure that we can do what we can to reconnect those families," Clara Andriola of the American Red Cross said.
