Philippines disaster agency has said that at least 60 people are now known to have died in the torrential rain and floods that paralysed the northern Philippines this week.

The waters are now receding, but officials say it is still not safe for people to leave emergency shelters.

Officials say that many flood victims still need food, blankets and medicine.

More rain is expected in the coming days and a typhoon is expected to hit the country early next week.
