Philippines raises storm toll to 57

by Staff Writers
Manila (AFP) May 26, 2008
The death toll from a tropical storm that ravaged the northern Philippines last week has risen to 57, with belated reports of 13 more deaths, the civil defence office said Monday.

At least 29 people were also injured by tropical storm Halong, which caused widespread flooding and landslides on the country's main Luzon island, it said.

The area was without electricity and telephone links for days after Halong blew out of the Philippines on May 20.

The civil defence office said repairs were continuing in storm-hit areas.
