Leticia thought Singapore flooding bad. Floods, landslides kill 10 in Philippines. Youngest victim is 3 years old

MANILA - LANDSLIDES and floods in the central Philippines have killed three more people, bringing the death toll to 10. At least 14,000 residents also have evacuated to safer ground. Disaster officials said on Friday an elderly man and a 13-year-old boy drowned in flooding in Bohol province, while another man was electrocuted in floodwaters in Leyte province. A mudslide earlier this week buried seven members of a family, including children ages 3 to 16. The national disaster council says more 14,000 people in seven central and southern provinces had to be evacuated due to the floods and landslides triggered by days of heavy rains. -- AP
