Tropical storm wreaks havoc

LANDSLIDES and flooding from a tropical storm in the Philippines killed at least eight people and left four missing before the storm moved on, officials said yesterday.

The storm, locally known as Jolina, was being tracked over the South China Sea, about 540 kilometers northwest of the mountainous northern Philippines, with sustained winds of 75 kilometers per hour, officials said. The storm is the 10th to hit the country this year. Six people drowned in floods in the central Philippines, including a four-year-old child caught in a swollen river, the National Disaster Coordinating Council said.
