PHILIPPINES (AP) -- As if residents of the Philippines hadn't suffered enough at the hands of Mother Nature, today they were hit with a mild earthquake.

Fortunately, no damage has been reported, but there is still plenty of pain and devastation in the wake of super Typhoon Haiyan.

Some neighborhoods are still unreachable, and the U.N. says it could be another day before they get to the last areas cut off by the storm.
U.S. Marines are among those bringing supplies.

An estimate 11-million Filipinos were affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
The U.N. is now appealing for more than 300-million dollars in emergency aid.
