Philippines: Tropical storm Tembin kills as least 74

Manila, Dec 23 (JEN): At least 74 people have been reportedly killed as tropical storm Tembin swept through southern Philippines, reports said.

The storm brought with it mudslide and flash floods.

Two towns, Tubod and Piagapo, sustained most severe damage, as a number of homes were completely destroyed.

Dozens were killed a week ago as a similar tropical storm, Kai-Tak, struck central Philippines.
