Tropical storms hit Manila

Floodwaters have inundated parts of Manila and the surrounding areas, as tropical storm Trami hits the Philippines. The storm was enhanced by monsoon rains which swept through the area surrounding Manila, leaving huge parts of four provinces underwater and forcing residents to evacuate their homes to find shelter in evacuation centres. At least three fatalities were recorded with thousands more still needing to be rescued.
