The death toll is continuing to rise from a powerful typhoon that flooded much of the southern Philippines, CBN News reports. More than 280 people have been reported dead, at least 151 of those in the worst-hit province of Compostela Valley, and more than 50,000 have been forced to flee from flooded villages. "The waters came so suddenly and unexpectedly, and the winds were so fierce -- that compounded the loss of lives and livelihood," Compostela Valley provincial Gov. Arturo Uy told Reuters. Officials fear the death toll from Typhoon Bopha will increase as rescue crews and soldiers reach other hard-hit areas that had been isolated by landslides and flooding.
