    In the northern Philippines, hundreds of people remain on rooftops and trapped by floods after two weeks of stormy weather.

    At least 540 people have been killed and many areas left under water as a result of Typhoon Parma.

    Al Jazeera's Marga Ortigas travelled to the northern province of Pangacinan to see how people are trying to pick up the pieces.
