Filipino residents wade through floodwaters in Quezon city, east of Manila, Philippines, 08 August 2012. Philippine authorities rushed relief goods to nearly 800,000 people displaced by massive floods triggered by days of heavy rains in the capital and surrounding provinces, killing 21 people. The deluge, the worst since 2009 when flash floods killed hundreds in Manila, forced 242,211 residents to flee to evacuation centers in the capital and 11 provinces, while 607,941 people had taken refuge with relatives and friends, the Office of Civil Defense said.
