Philippines storm death roll rises to nine
Manila, Feb 14, 2018 (AFP) - The death toll from a tropical storm that struck the Philippines has risen to nine, officials said Wednesday, as some of the thousands of displaced residents returned home with floods receding.
Landslides and flash floods brought by Tropical Storm Sanba struck the main southern island of Mindanao on Tuesday and killed eight people, the civil defence office in the region said, doubling its earlier figure of four deaths.
