    The tropical storm that hit the southern Philippines on Friday and Saturday has left at least 200 people dead and many homeless.

    The island of Mindanao was the worst hit. The local administration there has been criticised for not doing enough to help.

    A survivor from Tubod town, where an entire neighbourhood was destroyed, told Al Jazeera that they have ‘never experienced a flood like it'.
