Philippines storm and floods kill 436
Southern Philippines

Sat Dec 17, 10:11 p.m. PHT: The Red Cross says the mounting death toll from flash floods that ravaged the southern Philippines has reached 436.

[Update, Sun Dec 18, 1:29 p.m. PHT: The Philippine Red Cross says the death toll has risen to 521]

Most of the dead were asleep last night when raging floodwaters triggered by typhoon Washi tore through their homes from swollen rivers and cascaded from mountain slopes following 12 hours of pounding rain in the southern Mindanao region.

Southern Philippines change a lot, but when I was young Northern Philippines has a lot of rain until now
 
These things break my heart. So sorry for this tragic sadness. God bless them to get through the pain.
 
How awful! My heart goes out to all of those affected and the families of those who have died. With so many people displaced, dysentery and other illnesses are going to be a problem. Doctors Without Borders is another excellent charity that will need donations to help with the aftermath: https://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/donate/

The storm hit the southern Philippines, an area not normally visited by typhoons, at the dead of the night. Many people affected did not know what hit them until it was too late. Let us continue to pray for all those impacted by the storm and hope that others can help in the recovery of what is the poorest region of the country.
