About a 100 people have died after Tropical Storm Tembin triggered floods and landslides in  Philippines.

The flood and the landslides, known locally as Vinta, hit the southern island of Mindanao, bringing winds of Eighty kilometers per hour and torrential rain.

This left dead  Dozens of people as others went missing.

Reports confirm that At least 48 people were killed in the hard-hit provinces of Lanao del Norte, where floodwaters from a mountain swept away several houses and villagers in the area.

However,  only six years ago, Tropical Storm Washi hit the island. Like embin, Washi wasn’t a particularly strong storm, but it killed more than 1,249 people.

The storm brought heavy rain to regions where the natural forest had been logged or converted into pineapple plantations. This allowed the water to run off the relatively barren soils and create devastating flash floods.

These floods and landslides struck at night, killing many people as they slept in their beds without knowing about the danger of the upcoming Storms.

After the disaster, Mayor Edding blamed years of logging for the tragedy, adding he and other officials would move to halt logging operations.

However, unless there is an active replanting programme to replace the trees, his efforts are likely to be futile.
