Flooding in the Philippines leaves 56 dead”

More than 6,600 people were stranded in various ports, while Cebu Air Inc. and Philippine Airlines Inc. canceled more than a dozen flights from December 27 to December 30.

"The wind was not strong but it caused flooding and landslides", the spokesperson said.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) also said 16 are missing, and 12 were injured in Mimaropa, Bicol Region, and Eastern Visayas in the aftermath of Tropical Depression Usman.

Most victims died in landslides, including a family of three asleep when their house was buried in Legazpi City, 336 kilometres southeast of Manila, police said on Sunday.

"Most of the affected areas are underwater".

Fifty of the fatalities were reported in the Bicol region and six in the Eastern Visayas region.

However, Yucot said many others chose to stay after the government's weather agency downgraded the storm's severity warning.

Thousands of others were stranded at seaports, airports and bus terminals after dozens of inter-island trips were canceled because of the storm.

Trump visits troops in Iraq
President Donald Trump , who is visiting Iraq, says he has "no plans at all" to remove US troops from the country. Trump told the troops that other people wanted their raise to be smaller, but he fought for a double-digit boost.

The tropical depression, which has since been downgraded to a low pressure area, left the Philippines on this afternoon.

Although Usman has since moved westward away from the country, many affected areas were still experiencing seasonal rains, hampering rescue and recovery efforts, he added.

But he said it had been raining in Bicol even before Usman made landfall and brought torrential rains and landslides.

A cold front and the north-east monsoon were also bringing bad weather over the capital and other parts of the country, which could dampen usually rowdy New Year's Eve celebrations.
