More than 30 people have died and dozens are missing by the passage of tropical storm Kai-tak in the Philippines, displacing thousands of people and causing major landslides in several provinces, waiting to cause even more damage as it moves towards west of the country. The storm, known by locals as Urduja, has crossed the eastern region of the Visayas, the same area that was devastated in 2013 by the super typhoon Haiyan, which killed more than 8,000 people. However, heavy rains have already isolated more than 11,000 people from their homes and more than 10,000 people have fled to emergency shelters.
Favor aid and relief to the victims and displaced for to alleviate their suffering and promote effective humanitarian aid and disaster prevention.
