Manila braces for more floods

Philippines capital set for another deadly wet season, forecasters warn.

    Weather officials in the Philippines say the capital Manila is facing another devastating wet season in the coming months.

    Last year, many parts of Manila were flooded by storms which left more than 200 people dead, and some forecasters say this year could be worse.
