greggandersonROCHESTER- For three days, Dianna Schneider sat with cell phone in hand, glued to the news coverage of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Her brother, Gregg Anderson of Kirkland, flew there to meet a friend last week for his 50th birthday.  Anderson first flew into Manila, then onto Tacloban City on Tuesday, Nov. 5.  Schneider is hoping by the time he arrived, authorities would not have let him travel on by road to the beach home further east where he was supposed to stay.

Family members worry the mortgage banker could have been caught in the middle of the storm that is estimated to have killed 10,000 people or more. Cell phone towers and internet services are down, so getting in touch with anyone overseas has been extremely difficult.

Hear from Dianna Schneider and another Filipino family who has relatives in the area hit by the storm on Q13 FOX News at 4 and 5 p.m.
