Six people have been killed and four others are missing after massive flooding hit the southern Philippines island of Mindanao.
The floods have displaced more than 150,000 people, many of whom have taken refuge in crowded government shelters.
Rescue and relief operations are underway in five flooded-ravaged provinces.
Meteorologists have warned that more heavy rain is expected this week.
A state of calamity has been declared in Davao province where more than fifteen villages have been submerged for days.
The flooding is another blow to residents in Davao and Compostela Valley who have been trying to recover from the effects of powerful Typhoon Bopha in December.
