New storm hits Philippines

  • After Typhoon Haiyan caused immense amount of destruction in Philippines, the nation has now been struck with heavy rain. 

    The good news, however, is that Tropical Depression Zoraida landed about 300 miles away from the region affected the most by the typhoon. 

    This latest storm is in fact, the 25th one to hit Philippines this year and has moved to a low-pressure area. However, that's still not good enough since it only took Davao City 24 hours to see 3.2 inches of rain. 

    The country is now calling for climate change action after the typhoon destruction. "To anyone who continues to deny the reality that is climate change, I dare them to get off their ivory towers," Delegate Naderev Saño said. "I dare them to go to the islands of the Pacific."

    These comments are in regards to the government's hesitation to take action on this issue, which it "cannot afford to procrastinate."
