" 'I returned and saw that our house was completely gone,' a weeping Limbago told The Associated Press from Cagayan de Orocity. 'There was nothing but mud all over and knee-deep floodwaters.' "

"Tropical Storm Washi blew away Sunday after devastating a wide swath of the mountainous region on Mindanao island, which is unaccustomed to major storms. It killed at least 652 people and left more than 900 others missing, the Philippine Red Cross said." [Check the link above for the full story from Yahoo]
