Typhoon dumps torrents of rain on Philippines; at least 7 people dead, 20,000 displaced


MANILA, Philippines — A typhoon dumped torrents of rain as it swept past the Philippines, killing at least seven people and displacing more than 20,000 others by Tuesday. Another storm lashed the capital and neighboring provinces, leaving several parts of Manila without power and under water.
The wild weather whipped up by Typhoon Saola as it roared off the country’s northeast was compounded by a separate low-pressure area that lashed Manila with tornado-like winds and powerful thunderstorms late Sunday and early Monday. Many parts of the capital and outlying provinces were without power and low-lying areas were flooded.
