Tropical storm hits northern Philippines

Tropical storm Kai-Tak has brought a fresh deluge to the Philippines, which is already reeling after weeks of torrential rain.

At least four people were killed as the storm slammed into northern areas, bringing to around 100 the number of lives lost in recent flooding.

A man swept away by a swollen river and two people entombed in a tunnel after a landslide are among the latest victims.

Hit hard by last week’s deadly downpours, the capital Manila and surrounding provinces are also feeling the effects of the latest extreme weather.
Despite a big clean-up operation, the seasonal monsoon rains are continuing to take their toll.
