Tropical storm Wukong leaves four dead in Philippines

After the devastation of Typhoon Bopha, another tropical storm hits the central Philippines, leaving four people dead. Wukong swept through the country on Wednesday, felling trees, damaging houses and capsizing fishing boats. Rivers overflowed, flooding towns and making roads impassable. Three people from one family in Eastern Samar province were killed when a tree fell on their house while another victim drowned. More than 14,000 people were left stranded in port cities as ferry services were grounded. For one elderly woman, it was all too much. "Oh God, please don't overwhelm us," she says. "It is one typhoon after another." There was some good news for residents as Wukong weakened to a low pressure system on Thursday. Storm warnings have been lifted across coastal provinces - though more than 6000 people are still staying in temporary shelters.
