Of the total deaths reported, 23 have been confirmed while the rest are still under further validation, according to the National Disaster Risk Response and Management Council (NDRRMC).

The number of affected families stood at 158,510 composed of more than 626,000 people. These are in the regions of Ilocos, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Mimaropa, Cordillera, Western Visayas, and Caraga.

It exited the Philippine area on Oct. 12. — Marifi S. Jara
