1,150 LDS Families Displaced by Flooding in the Philippines

Two typhoons, Typhoon Lubuya and Typhoon Maring, caused widespread flooding in 16 provinces and hundreds of cities and villages in the Philippines—including Manila. Some 260,000 families or 1.2 million people, including 1,150 Latter-day Saint families, were displaced by the storms, according to a Church welfare report.
