Flash floods triggered by heavy rainstorms have killed at least 25 people, and forced multiple evacuations, in the southern Philippines. Ten people remain missing in the city of Davao.
Tuesday's deluge affected thousands of residents from four communities, while damaging dozens of homes. The city's mayor says nearly 15,000 families have been displaced by the sudden floods.
Many survivors had no choice but to stand on rooftops, waiting for rescuers in rubber boats to take them to higher ground. Others decided to swim through chest-high water, assisted by navy and fire department personnel.
The National Weather Bureau says more rain showers and thunderstorms may hit the southern Philippines this week, due to an Inter-tropical Convergence Zone. Forecasters also warn of possible flash floods and landslides.
