Tropical storm Nangka



At least eight people were reported killed and 12 others missing after tropical storm Nangka swept through the central and northern Philippines yesterday. More than 44 000 people had to leave their homes.


Nangka brought heavy rains, strong winds, hailstorms and even a tornado to various parts of the country, causing floods, landslides and power outages. Ferries were unable to sail, leaving some 10 000 people and hundreds of vehicles stranded at ports.


Nangka subsequently weakened as it moved across the South China Sea towards the China coast.
