Philippine floods

Nine people have died and nearly 200,000 have been displaced in flash floods and landslides triggered by heavy rains across the Philippines. Nine other people were missing, while two others have been injured, the National Disaster Coordinating Council (NDCC) said. The tail-end of a cold front sweeping through the country's eastern seaboard had brought heavy rains across 11 provinces from northern Luzon to the eastern section of southern Mindanao island since last week, it said. The agency said 37,889 families or about 191,586 people have been affected.
