Over 430 people were killed by devastating floods which swept the Philippines last night.

A tropical storm struck the island country and carried people away as they slept, sweeping some straight out to sea.

Hundreds more are believed to be missing as aid workers try to rebuild the villages destroyed by flooding.

The disaster came after Tropical Storm Washi made landfall and triggered 12 hours of non-stop rain in southern cities including Iligan and Cagayan de Oro.

Those killed while trapped in their homes included children and pensioners who were unable to retreat in time.
