Philippine Floods
Four people have been killed in landslides and massive flooding caused by heavy rains brought by a tropical depression in the Philippines.

Five people were also reported missing when flash floods swept their shanty home near a river in the province of Laguna, south of Manila.

The weather bureau said Tropical Depression Maring made landfall in eastern Quezon province Tuesday morning and was moving northwest with winds of 60 kilometers (37 miles) per hour and gusts of up to 100 kilometers (62 miles) per hour.

 It warned that continued moderate to heavy rain in Manila and nearby provinces along the storm's path could trigger more floods and landslides.
