New tropical storm menaces Philippines after deadly typhoon

On the heels of a typhoon that left at least 21 people dead in the Philippines and 33 others missing, another tropical storm brewing in the Pacific is expected to hit the area within 24 hours, according to the state weather bureau.

Typhoon Nesat - referred to in the Philippines as Pedring - displaced thousands but was expected to move offshore Wednesday afternoon, the state-run Philippines News Agency reported.

A baby boy was among the 21 dead after Typhoon Nesat slammed into the Philippines on Tuesday, authorities said. Twenty-five other people were injured, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).

    I wonder if reporting is getting better or if disasters are really more numerorus? But, what really matteres is the tragic loss of life and property–it can be depressing.
