Just two months after the deadliest typhoon ever to hit the Philippines, the country is facing the effect of another tropical storm.
The Philippines is battling against another tropical storm just two months after Typhoon Haiyan hit the country. Days of heavy rain have caused floods and mudslides in the south of the Philippines. Here a resident stands on the roof of his home that is submerged in flood water.
More than 100,000 families have had to be evacuated from their homes. This family uses an inflatable tyre tube to escape.
The country is hit by an average of 20 storms and typhoons each year, as well as frequent earthquakes. Now, entire villages are under water, and many houses have been swept away.
Roads have also been damaged by landslides, making it more difficult to get aid to those who need it.
These chicks were rescued by a resident after landslides hit a village in the southern Philippine island of Mindanao.
Over 6,000 people were killed by Typhoon Haiyan and a number of people are still homeless. Residents here wade through a flooded road to reach higher ground to try to escape flood waters.
The United Nations (UN) says many of the temporary shelters used after Typhoon Haiyan aren't strong enough to cope with the extreme weather. This girl pulls her brother on a raft along a flooded part of road in Butuan City.

Those who have fled to higher ground are staying in government buildings. This boy's resting in the corridor of a school that has been turned into an evacuation centre.
These children are playing with spiders at an evacuation centre to keep themselves entertained. Some children have lost all of their belongings and toys. Emergency teams are working hard to reach the people needing food and clean water.
