Flooding And Deaths In Mindanao

Flash floods sparked by a tropical storm in the southern Philippines have killed more than 200 people and left hundreds missing, officials say.
Many of the victims were asleep when it struck Mindanao island, killing many in Iligan City and Cagayan de Oro.
Tens of thousands of people have fled to higher ground, the authorities say.
Benito Ramos, head of the national disaster rescue agency, said reports were still coming in and the casualty figures could rise.
Mr Ramos said the floodwaters had risen alarmingly fast overnight as people slept.
"Massive flooding had been reported over the region, especially in Iligan City and Cagayan de Oro City," he said
