Death Toll Jumps To 41 In Philippines Typhoon

MANILA: The number of deaths from a powerful storm that hit the Philippines on Christmas has climbed to 41, authorities said Sunday (Dec 29), with tens of thousands still in evacuation centres.

Typhoon Phanfone left the Philippines on Saturday after devastating several islands in the central Visayas, including popular tourist destinations, but the extent of the damage continued to grow as assessments came in.

The death toll of 41 – up from 28 on Friday – included three boat crew who died after their vessel capsized due to strong winds, a policeman electrocuted by a toppled post, and a man struck by a felled tree.
