Thousands of people displaced by floods in the southern PhilippinesShirley Escalante, Manila, Tuesday June 18, 2013 - 19:41 EST
Nearly 100,000 people have been displaced by floods in the southern Philippines.
Storm Leepi has flooded five southern provinces- Maguindanao, Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and Davao.
Authorities fear the number of people displaced may increase as the storm is expected to remain in the country until Friday.
Aside from staying in evacuation centres, people displaced by storm Leepi have been setting up tents along major roads in Maguindanao province.
Some evacuees have complained of not having sufficient food and other supplies in evacuation centres.
However local officials say they have been distributing relief goods in refugee centres since the floods began over the weekend.
