Widespread flooding paralyzed the Philippine capital and many other areas on Wednesday as rescue efforts focused on the large number of distressed residents who are still marooned on their roof tops and unable to move to high ground. Emergency workers and troops rushed food, water and clothes to nearly 850,000 people displaced and marooned from deadly floods spawned by 11 straight days of southwest monsoon rains that soaked the Philippine capital and nearby provinces.
