Hur­ri­cane death toll climbs to 13, search con­tin­ues

Sunday Express - - WORLD -

The death toll from Hur­ri­cane Michael has risen to at least 13 amid fears it will con­tinue to climb as search-and-res­cue teams scour the de­bris of the Florida town that bore the brunt of the mon­ster storm. “Mex­ico Beach is dev­as­tated,” Florida Gov­er­nor Rick Scott said of the town where Michael made land­fall as a Cat­e­gory 4 storm on Wed­nes­day. An­war Ibrahim won an over­whelm­ing man­date in a par­lia­men­tary by-election on Satur­day, set­ting the stage for his re­turn to front­line Malaysian pol­i­tics and seal­ing the once-jailed op­po­si­tion fig­ure’s re­mark­able res­ur­rec­tion. Fig­ures from the Election Com­mis­sion showed he got more than 71 per cent of the to­tal votes cast.
