More are missing, so the count is likely to increase. BBC News:

Rescuers are continuing the search for survivors after floods killed more than 500 people and left hundreds more missing in the southern Philippines. Naval vessels are scouring the coast along the island of Mindanao while soldiers searched swollen rivers. Officials said many bodies remained unclaimed, suggesting entire families had been swept away. The flash floods were triggered by a tropical storm that coincided with high tides, trapping many in their homes.
