On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I want to send my deepest condolences for the devastation and loss of life caused by flooding from Tropical Storm Washi in southern Philippines. The U.S. government stands ready to assist Philippine authorities as they respond to this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those affected.
