Sisters Hear Good News from Family in Philippines

CORPUS CHRISTI - Three sisters with family in the Philippines say they've finally gotten in touch with relatives affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

They tell us their mother and other relatives are doing fine considering the damage to their homeland.

The storm washed away the family's house and everything they owned. Nieces and nephews were almost swept away in the flooding, but they survived by holding on to the top of a mango tree.

The family members are now staying with a relative in a nearby province.
