PHILIPPINES TROPICAL STORMS KILLED 6 AND THE DEATH TOLL COULD RISE

`
Nearly 10,000 people were stranded as marine transport came to a halt due to the storms . At least six people have been killed after a tropical storm swept through the central Philippines.
Eleven people are also reported to be missing and there are fears that the death toll could rise.
  • The storm, packing sustained winds of 75kph, first struck eastern Samar province on Tuesday and swept across the centre of the country on Wednesday.
  • In mountainous Quezon province it also contributed to the formation of a tornado that ripped the roofs off houses in the region and killed four fishermen.
  • Seventy houses in Samar were destroyed and in nearby Romblon province, 20 homes were swept away.
  • The storm also caused heavy disruption to transport and more than 60 domestic flights were also cancelled.
  • In Quezon province, located about 110km southeast of the capital Manila, a tornado struck a fishing boat that had taken cover in a cove, killing four fishermen and injuring two others.
  • Elsewhere waves and strong winds whipped up by the storm caused a passenger boat to capsize off central Mactan Island.
  • Philippine coast guard ships rescued all 14 aboard the boat, officials said.
