At Least 2 Dead in Philippines Floods, Landslides

MANILA Two adolescents died on Tuesday during landslides and floods caused by the tropical depression Maring in northern Philippines.

The victims were identified as Justin and Jude Pandal, aged 14 and 17 respectively, who died in the Taytay locality close to Manila after they were buried by a landslide caused by heavy rain, the broadcaster GMA reported.

Authorities have not confirmed the number of people affected or evacuated by the floods affecting large swathes of Luzon island, including the capital Manila.

A heavy rain alert has been issued for Manila city, Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Pampanga, Nueva Ecija, Zambales, Bataan, Pangasinan, north Quezon and south Aurora.

Schools have been closed for Tuesday and Wednesday in the capital and surrounding areas.

Maring has moved north to the south of China, where it is expected to make landfall on Wednesday at a speed of 15-kph (89-mph), accompanied by sustained winds of up to 60-kph and gusts of up to 100-kph.

In November 2013, typhoon Haiyan, which was one of the most powerful ever recorded in the Philippines, caused more than 6,300 deaths.
