Death Toll Expected to Rise After Storm in the Philippines

Published: September 27, 2009
MANILA — At least 86 people were killed and dozens of others were missing early Monday after a tropical storm swept through the northern Philippines, causing Manila’s worst flooding in nearly half a century, officials said.

Here in the capital, countless people remained on the roofs of their houses, where they had spent the night, drenched and unable to come down because of the floodwaters that had accumulated since the rain began falling Friday evening. The death toll was expected to rise sharply as more reports of casualties came in from provinces outside of Manila.

Tropical Storm Ketsana, packing 53-mile-per-hour winds, dumped nearly 17 inches of rain in just 12 hours, said Nathaniel Cruz, the government’s chief weather forecaster.  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/28/world/asia/28philip.html?em

This has been a rough year for the Philippines with tropical storms (see Typhoons in Philippines) and food shortages (see Food & Aid for the Philippines).
