Tens of thousands of people have been forced to evacuate the Philippine capital Manila due to severe floods.
Ten people were killed on Tuesday in a landslide caused by the torrential rain, reports the Philippine Star.
Eight members of a family, including a two-month old baby, were crushed by the landslide in Quezon City in the metropolitan area of Manila.
Torrential rain has battered the Philippines for over week, caused by Typhoon Saola. Reports suggest that the monsoon is being enhanced by tropical storm Haikui, currently situated 184 miles north-east of Taiwan, reports the BBC.
The Philippine government has closed all offices and schools because of the waist-deep floods. The Philippine Daily Inquirer also reported that the Stock Exchange had been flooded.
The death toll has steadily risen to 50 and flooding is predicted to continue as La Mesa Dam, the main reservoir for Manila's metropolitan area, starts to overflow.
Devastating floods in 2009 caused the dam to overflow, which resulted in 400 deaths.
