Philippines typhoon death toll rises as clean up begins | Al Jazeera

Police in the Philippines said the death toll from Typhoon Vamco has risen to 26, with dozens still missing or injured after the storm deluged Manila and its surrounding provinces, triggering some of the capital’s worst floods in years.

Fourteen people remain missing after Vamco, the 21st typhoon to hit the country this year, swept across Luzon, the Philippines’ main island.

Tens of thousands of homes were submerged by floods, as key highways turned into rivers. Many people remained without power or water supplies on Friday morning, although flood levels had started to recede in parts of the badly hit Marikina suburb on Friday morning.

    The government's preliminary count currently stands at 14 dead and 14 missing, although presidential spokesman, Harry Roque, warned at a press conference that the figures will increase as reports of victims are verified. EFE-EPA
