September 26th 2009 Two days after tropical storm Ketsana struck the Philippines, sending six metre floods surging through Manila, the capital is a disaster zone. While the floods have receded somewhat, parts of the city are still underwater; the rest is under several feet of stinking mud. Nearly two million homes were inundated, and around 400,000 people are homeless. More than 12,000 people have been rescued, and with colds and exposure already hitting children and the elderly, aid agencies are scrambling to get food, clean water and medicine to a desperate city. Parts of the city of 12 million people were under 20 ft of water, leaving nearly half a million from their homes across Manila and surrounding provinces.
