Typhoon victims rest inside a gymnasium turned into a temporary evacuation center in Navotas city, north of Manila, Philippines, on October 4. President Benigno Aquino III and his cabinet have created rehabilitation plans for the areas affected by the recent typhoons Nesat and Nalgae. According to the Office of Civil Defense, typhoon Nalgae has so far left one person dead, while 57 people died and 30 were missing in typhoon Nesat's onslaught, which also flooded central Manila.

Evacuees take temporary shelter inside the Mother of Perpetual Help Church in Hagonoy, Bulacan province, the Philippines, on October 4. Rescue helicopters and boats distributed food, water and medicine to thousands of Filipinos marooned in flooded towns north of the capital on Monday and authorities said water levels were starting to recede. Wide areas of rice-producing Bulacan and Pampanga provinces have been submerged since late last week after the Philippines was hit by two typhoons. A third storm may develop this week.
