Rescue workers in the Solomon Islands found 65 bodies buried in mud and debris on Guadalcanal, raising the confirmed death toll from Typhoon Namu to 71. "We think hundreds died," said John Selwyn, National Disaster Committee spokesman. The worst storm in the island nation's history left 90,000 people--more than a third of the population--homeless.
