    DEATH TOLL AFTER THE HURRICANE IN THE PHILIPPINES HAS PASSED 1,000. 1,020 DIED. 844 REMAIN MISSING - HALF OF THEM FISHERMEN


    After the devastating typhoon "Bopha" in the Philippines on 4 December, the death toll has risen to more than 1,000. So far 1,020 dead bodies have been recovered according to the government. The death toll might rise further as 844 people are regarded as missing. 27,000 remain homeless living in random shelters.

    The typhoon triggered landslides and floodings.

    Most deaths occurred in the southern island, MINDANAO.

    On 4 December, "Bopha" made landfall with wind speeds / wind gusts of about 210 km per hour in the eastern part of Mindanao. A few days later it returned at reduced speed, but with heavy rainfalls.

    The citizens were not at all prepared for the strength of the typhoon. This part of the Philippines (Mindanao) had not been hit by a powerful storm since 1912, says Benito Ramos who is the Filipino head of the civil defense.

    The typhoon has caused massive damage to infrastructure and agriculture.

    TYPHOON "BOPHA" KILLED AROUND 1,500 PEOPLE IN THE PHILIPPINES

    The number of deaths caused by the typhoon Bopha that ravaged the Philippines earlier this month (around 4.12.12) is likely to pass 1,500 according to the authorities.

    That makes Bopha the second-most deadly typhoon in the south-east Asian country since recording hereof started in 1947.

    The worst typhoon since 1947 in the country was "Thelma" in 1991 when more than 5,000 were killed.

    The head of the country's Civil Defense, Benito Ramos says that so far 1,067 have been confirmed dead. 800 are missing.

    The death toll will rise, but not all missing can be regarded as dead
    , he says. He estimates that the death toll will be around 1,500.

    At least 200,000 are in need of acute humanitarian help after the typhoon that killed more than 1,000 at the beginning of December.

    The situation is really desperate, says Gwendolyn Pang, secretary-general of the Filipino Red Cross.

    "We must meet people's basic needs such as food and water, but also help them rebuild their homes", says Gwendolyn Pang.

    DOWN TO MINUS 57 DEGREES CELSIUS IN RUSSIA

    The heaviest December frost for 50 years paralyzes Russia.

    The Civil Defence / Protection in Sibiria urges people not to stay in cars too long. The risk is too big to freeze to death while waiting for assistance.

    In the huge Russian republic of Sacha people are freezing the most with temperatures down to minus 57 degrees Celsius.

    A strong low-pressure over the northern part of the Pacific peninsula Kamtjatka is causing the icecold weather east of the Ural Mountains - in connection with a high-pressure area over Sibiria.
