Storm leaves 11 dead in landslides, floods in Philippines

A tropical storm set off landslides and flash floods as it barreled over the tip of the northern Philippines, leaving at least 11 people dead and seven missing, officials said Tuesday. Tropical Storm Kompasu was last tracked over the South China Sea heading toward China’s Hainan island and later Vietnam with sustained winds of 100 kilometers (62 miles) per hour and gusts of 125 kph (78 mph), government forecasters said. Six villagers died in landslides that hit their houses in the northern mountain province of Benguet and three others in the region remain missing.
