Just days after mudslides caused by tropical storm Kai-Tak left dozen of people dead in central Philippines a new storm, Tembin, is battering the Mindanao Region

The storm hit, with sustained winds of 100 km/h and gusts up to 150 km/h.

 

More than 200mm of rain on top of rivers filled with flows from the Kai-Tak storm has caused major flooding with people being swept out to sea.

Local authories believe over 200 have died with the toll expected to rise further.

Also over 75,000 people have been estimated to have been displaced from their homes.

Disaster Aid's Philippines partner, Balay Mindanaw have activated their Disaster Resiliancy and Emergency Assistance Mission (DREAM) teams to help the local population.

The Dream team's resources include pre-placed equipment, such as Disaster Aid Australia supplied SkyHydrants which can produce safe drinking water without the need for power of chemicals.
