Floods and landslides in the Philippines have killed at least 13 people. Eight people are also missing, according to the national emergency service.

 

Tropical Storm Kompasu caused the natural disaster. It has now left the Philippines and is heading for China, where it is expected to make landfall on Hainan Island on Wednesday.

Kompasu has wind speeds of up to 100 kilometres per hour with peaks of up to 125 kilometres per hour.

The weather service warns that the worst affected areas could still experience landslides and flash floods. This is due to the large amount of rain that has fallen and is still in the ground. In addition, highways and bridges were flooded as a result of the rain.
