Typhoon “Urduja” leaves some families in mourning after as it hit the eastern part of Visayas over the weekend, killing 26 people, and injuring 34 others.

National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said that most of these casualties were caused by landslides and severe flooding in Biliran, Leyte, and Eastern Samar. There are also 46 people reported missing.

Around 30,000 people are still stuck and affected by the widespread flood.

Another brewing storm is about to hit the country after typhoon “Urduja” battered the Visayas region, reported weather bureau PAGASA.
