Fourth Typhoon Descends on Philippines

Ad Feedback

A fourth typhoon is bearing down on the Philippines after a long month of pounding rains and wind crippled the nation.

Residents took shelter from Typhoon Mirinae as it made landfall on the country late Friday and threatened to create mudslides.

At least 10,000 villagers near rivers have already evacuated their homes and more are expected to crowd shelters overnight.

Parts of the capital city of Manila are still submerged from earlier storms that killed 900 people and left tens of thousands homeless.

Tropical storm Ketsana dumped the heaviest rains the nation had seen in 40 years on Sept. 26. Homes and businesses were flooded with a month's worth of rain in just 12 hours.

About 122,000 people are still living in government-run evacuation centers in the Philippines.

Typhoon Mirinae is projected to move away from the Philippines in the direction of Vietnam by the weekend.
