ArabiaWeather - The National Council for Disaster Reduction has reported that at least 16 people have died in the Philippines as a result of tropical cyclone “Moulaf” (known locally as “Quinta”), including many who were washed away by flood waters in Negros Oriental in Central Visayas and Romblon in the Mimaroba region.

Heavy rains were reported in several parts of the country, including 282.8 mm of rain recorded in the 24 hours through 25 October and Romblon recorded 138 mm the following day.

The country's National Council for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management also said on October 27 that it was checking reports of 3 deaths and 13 missing during the storm.
