    the use of Z"as"

    Dear all,

    This is a headline I found in yesterday's newspaper.

    13 dead, 10 missing as typhoon unloads.

    I don't know how I should interpret the use of "as" in this case.

    Does "A as B" mean "A happened as a result of B, "?

    Thank you!

    In this case 'as' means 'while'.
