34 killed in Philippine floods, landslides

MANILA – At least 34 people have been killed in floods and landslides caused by a tropical depression in the Philippines, the national disaster relief agency said on Friday.

Seven people were missing while more than 212,000 people were displaced from 14 provinces affected by the bad weather.

The weather bureau warned the tropical depression was moving slowly and would bring more rains over the weekend in the southern, central and eastern Philippines.

Some areas devastated by Typhoon Haiyan in November were also experiencing heavy rains due to the tropical depression.

Haiyan killed more than 6,200 people and displaced over 4 million people when it hit the eastern Philippines with record winds, flattening houses and buildings.
