Philippines, Iligan City
December 25, 2017 at 09:57 GMT -00:00 · Published

Emergency workers have launched rescue operations after Typhoon Tembin caused severe flooding in Iligan City on Monday.

Tembin, which hit the southern Philippines, strengthened from a tropical storm into a typhoon a day earlier.

According to reports over 164 have been killed and 171 are missing due to floods and landslides, however death toll counts are unclear due to conflicting reports from officials.

Tens of thousands of people have been evacuated across the southern Philippines to emergency accommodations after their homes were swept away by the floods.

Emergency services and organisations have launched rescue operations deploying around 4000 people to help in the effort.

Las autoridades de Vietnam lanzaron operaciones de rescate y evacuaciones de la ciudad de LLigan tras el paso del tifón Tembin.

Tembin, que azotó el sur de Filipinas, se fortaleció de tormenta tropical a tifón el día anterior.

La cifra de víctimas es de 164 muertos y 171 desaparecidos, indicó en una rueda de prensa Marina Marasigan, de la agencia filipina de gestión de desastres. Sin embargo no se sabe el número exacto de las víctimas debido a los informes contradictorios de los funcionarios. Decenas de miles seguían en 261 centros de evacuación en la zona sur del país o se vieron desplazadas y habían encontrado cobijo en otros lugares. Unas 4.000 personas participan en las operaciones de rescate.
