After Storm Tembin skirts the southern edge of Palawan it is forecast to travel west, south of the Spratly Islands, reaching southern Vietnam in about three days

 

A week ago, Tropical Storm Kai-Tak hit the central Philippines, killing dozens.

 

The region is still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan, which killed more than 5,000 people and affected millions in 2013.

 

Never heard about any of this on our nightly national TV news, or NPR (national public radio). :(

Heard all about Prince Harry's engagement photos, though. :uhhuh:

As long as Harry and Meghan have a storybook wedding and a wonderful life, what else really matters?

@Alexa Do you know how the brothers and sisters are?  Mindanao has had its fair share of troubles lately, with isis terrorists, and now this :(

 

Over 180 people reported killed, villages washed away, mudslides.

 

"Lanao del Sur province is the poorest in the Philippines, and in the past seven months there have been around 350,000 people displaced in that province because of fighting," he told the BBC, referring to battles between government forces and Islamist militants in Marawi.
