Thousands evacuate as Cagayan River swells

Policemen evacuate a baby in Cagayan De Oro City on Friday after the Cagayan River swelled due to heavy rains brought by Tropical Storm "Vinta." The storm, which struck Mindanao before dawn on December 22, unleashed floods and landslides across a region of 20 million people, officials said.
