Death Toll in Deadly Philippines Storm Rises

At least  71 people are dead  after a massive storm struck the Philippines, according to the country's National Disaster Management Agency.  Multiple outlets report at least 57 people died in the mountainous region of Bicol and at least 11 people died in Samar.

Many were killed in landslides and flooding.

Officials say 17 people are missing and more than 40,000 were displaced.

Officials say the death toll will likely continue to rise.

The Bicol Civil Defense director says the storm was not strong enough to be rated as a typhoon, so many people were not prepared.

The country has already faced a number of deadly storms this year.

Super Typhoon Mangkhut killed more than 80 people in September.

And in October, Typhoon Yutu killed at least 17 people.
