In its 5 p.m. weather bulletin, PAGASA located the eye of "Urduja" at 120 kilometers northwest of Puerto Princesa, Palawan.

The storm dumped heavy rain that triggered severe flooding and landslides in many provinces in the central Philippines and the southernmost tip of the Philippine main Luzon Island.

According to the weather bureau, Urduja is forecast to be out of the country on Wednesday. Of those who were killed, 23 were from Biliran, five from Leyte, two from Samar and one from Eastern Samar.

An additional 49 people remain missing, while 34 were injured.

Local governments of Biliran, Kananga, Tanauan, Carigara, Ormoc and Tacloban in the Leyte province declared a state of calamity.

Meanwhile, the tropical depression seen outside Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) was downgraded to a low pressure area, PAGASA said.
