A child walks on a street flooded by Typhoon Mirinae in Taytay, east of suburban Manila on November 2, 2009. Mirinae slammed into the Philippines' main island, Luzon, killing 16 on October 31, 2009 dumping heavy rain and bringing strong winds just weeks after two other major storms left about 1,100 dead and tens of thousands homeless.
