60 Killed In Philippines By Storm Usman
(CNN)Scores of people have been killed after a powerful storm swept through the Philippines over the weekend.
The tropical depression, locally named Usman, brought heavy rains on Saturday, causing catastrophic flooding and triggering deadly landslides, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management agency said Monday.
The storm affected nearly 130,000 people, officials said, with dozens of areas facing power outages as a result of infrastructure damage.
Typhoon Mangkhut, the strongest typhoon of 2018, battered the southeast Asian country in September, packing winds of up to 270 kph (165 mph) and wreaking devastation across the northern Philippines.
