Tropical Storm Phanfone is slowly intensifying in the Philippine Sea, and is around 36 hours from landfall on Samar or Leyte, likely as a Category 1 typhoon Indeed, models are suggesting that the storm will reach its peak intensity briefly to the west of the Philippines , before dying off near Vietnam .

In Quezon province, southeast of the Philippines’s capital Manila, photographs showed widespread flooding and boats being used to ferry residents to dry ground.

“The rainfall coincided with La Niña and the high tide. That is a big problem,” Quezon Governor Danilo Suarez told broadcaster CNN Philippines.

A waist-deep flood had made the main road in Quezon province impassable for vehicles, Suarez said.

Nearly 6,000 people were evacuated in the provinces south of Manila as of Tuesday night, disaster agency data showed, although there were no reports of casualties.

Bad weather in some areas northeast of Manila had started to clear, with floods receding, Elson Egargue, a disaster official in Aurora province told DZMM radio station.

The Philippines, an archipelago of more than 7,600 islands and 107 million people, is battered by roughly 20 tropical storms annually, with Saudel being the 16th this year.

Vietnam is now in Saudel’s path with the storm expected to hit the country at full strength when it reaches the Paracels Islands in the South China Sea, the country’s disaster agency said, adding that the death toll from weeks-long floods and landslides had risen to 111, with 22 still missing.

CANCUN, Mexico (AP) — Storm-weary Louisiana is once again under a hurricane warning, with Zeta leaving Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula on a path that could hit New Orleans Wednesday night. Zeta, the 27th named storm in a very busy Atlantic season, made landfall as a hurricane just north of the ancient Mayan city of Tulum with maximum sustained winds of 80 mph (130 kph). It weakened to a tropical storm as it crossed over land, but it was expected to regain its strength over the Gulf of Mexico. Zeta's top winds were 70 mph (110 kmh) early Tuesday, centered about 560 miles (905 kmh) south of the mouth of the Mississippi River.
