GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - There are more signs of progress in the typhoon-ravaged Philippines as people line up outside a bank in Tacloban to get cash. 

Some shops and an open market also opened for the first time since the typhoon hit on Friday, November 8 and while the market was full of food, it's selling for double the normal price. 

UNICEF says essentials like food, water and medicine are still needed badly.

This week in the Twin Cities, The Cultural Society of Filipino Americans is hosting a Fundraising Benefit Concert for the Victims of Typhoon Haiyan, emceed by KARE 11's Jeremiah Jacobsen.

Jose Rivera, spokesperson for the group, visited KARE 11 Sunrise to talk about how you can help.
