Philippine typhoon floods rice fields, kills 8

Published: 10.12.13, 10:40 / Israel News

A typhoon that flooded villages and farms in the Philippines' major rice-growing region Saturday has killed at least eight people, officials said.


Power outages affected Aurora province, where Typhoon Nari made landfall late Friday, and five nearby provinces due to downed pylons and emergency shutdowns that were intended to prevent accidents. Nari slammed into the coast with 150 kilometers (94 miles) per hour winds and gusts of up to 185 kph (116 mph). (AP)
