The number of flood victims in the Philippines has reached 652 people. This is reported in the statement of the Red Cross. Another 808 people are reported missing.
Torrential rains and floods were caused by tropical storm "Uoshi," which reached the shores of the southern islands of the Philippine archipelago — Mindanao — in the middle of December.
It is reported that flood waters destroyed the town and washed away entire villages. Most residents element caught by surprise, because the flow of water and mud from the mountains struck the house at night. The greatest number of people killed in the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan.
As expected, the storm should completely leave the archipelago to Sunday evening.
