4 dead as storm hits PHL

At least four people died and six were missing after a major storm caused flooding in and around Manila yesterday, forcing schools, government offices and businesses to shut down.

A 12-year-old girl, who drowned in a rain-swollen river in a Manila suburb and a three-month old baby who was crushed by a landslide southeast of the capital, were among the victims, local officials said.

Most of the dead and missing were poor people forced to live in identified "danger zones" despite government warnings of the risks they face during storms.
