It's been about a week since Typhoon Haiyan slammed into the Philippines. The death toll so far stands at more than 3,000 people. Thousands more are sick, injured or still missing.

Christina Dunham, a resident of Northern California, has been trying to contact family members in some of the worst hit regions this past week. She joins Take Two to tell about her struggle to connect with family in the Philippines.
