Philippines’ Typhoon Vamco death toll rises to 67 – Yahoo News

A Philippines Coast Guard boat brings survivors of Typhoon Vamco to safety.

A second boat carries the bodies of those who weren’t so lucky – victims of the deadliest cyclone to hit the Philippines this year.

Officials say the death toll from Cyclone Vamco has risen to 67, with many areas still submerged in a northern region of the main Luzon island hit by the worst flooding in more than four decades.

Six cyclones hit the Philippines in a span of just four weeks, including Vamco and Super Typhoon Goni, the world’s most powerful this year.

President Rodrigo Duterte flew to Tuguegarao province to assess the situation in the Cagayan Valley region, where 22 deaths have been recorded, and which has seen severe flooding.

During a briefing, Cagayan Governor Manuel Mamba said that “This is the worst flooding that we had in the last 45 years,” adding “we see that it is worsening every year.”
