    Arrow Oº°`¨ Worst floods in 50 years hit Manila, Philippines ¨`°ºO

    A tropical storm that swept through the Philippines over
    the Sept. 26 weekend left 80% of the city underwater, 240 dead and
    hundreds of thousands of people displaced.


    The Philippines government says 240 people are now known to have died in
    severe flooding caused by Tropical Storm Ketsana.

    The country has appealed for foreign aid to deal with the disaster, which has
    displaced more than 450,000 people.

    Some 374,890 people are living in makeshift shelters, three times more than
    previously reported.

    Defence Secretary Gilberto Teodoro said the situation could become worse if
    aid supplies run out.

    The sharp rise in the death toll - up 100 from the previous figure - came
    after more than 90 deaths were recorded in Manila, the National Disaster
    Coordinating Council said in a statement.

    Commuters in Manila wade waist high down a thoroughfare. Ketsana is
    thought to have triggered the worst flooding in the Philippine capital in more
    than four decades.
