Heavy Rains Swamp Philippine Capital
Philippines Isolated Incident // Tropical Cyclone / Hurricane
MANILA - Deadly torrential rains submerged much of the Philippine capital and surrounding areas forcing nearly 270,000 people to flee their homes with more flooding expected in the north of the country as a tropical storm passes through the region. Steady rains for the past 10 days, killing more than 50 people, are set to continue , the Philippines weather bureau said, fuelled by tropical storm "Haikui" in the Philippine Sea northeast of Taiwan. The storm is headed for China's Zhejiang province where more than 250,000 people have been evacuated ahead of expected landfall late on Wednesday.
