Death Toll increases to over 652 with more than 800 still missing according to the Philippine Red Cross

The general secretary of the Philippine Red Cross has stated that the death toll continues to climb now reaching over 650 souls due to the flash floods caused by Tropical Storm Washi / Sendong Friday night in to Saturday Morning.  This by far eclipse all the storms so far this year and is the deadliest natural event second too the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake/ Tsunami in 2011.

At this time the evening of the 18th the storm continues to move away from the Philippines yet converging flow from a cold surge to the North and the Easterlies is causing rain showers across much of Luzon today. These could cause localized flooding but nothing compared to the devastation that occurred to the south.

Please go back and see the the videos in our previous updates that give you a harsh look at the reality unfolding in the region.
