MANILA, Feb 22 (AFP) - Eleven people
drowned and 21 others were missing in flooding which hit an area in the
southern Philippines last weekend, rescuers said Monday.
Two days of continuous rain caused the
Larapan river to overflow, destroying three bridges in the town of Kauswagan
and damaging 80 houses in Kauswagan, the city of Iligan and the municipality
of Linamon, the National Disaster Coordinating Council said in a report.
The floodwaters displaced about 1,000
people and three were injured, it added.
