Heavy Rains, Floods still Batter Asia

TAIPEI (Reuter) - Torrential rains struck pockets of Southeast Asia
Thursday as Typhoon Herb slammed into southern China and
severe floods deluged parts of India, Bangladesh, Thailand and
North Korea.

The powerful storm sliced through Taiwan, killing at least 14 people,
several buried under mudflows, while another 10 missing since
Wednesday were feared dead, rescue officials said.

Over 200 people have been injured by Herb, the second typhoon to
rattle the island in a week.
