Typhoon deaths rise to more than 300 in Philippines

Most of the victims were killed by falling trees and flash floods during the height of the storm on Tuesday, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, or NDRRMC, said.

Compostela Valley and Davao Oriental, the two provinces hardest hit, accounted for 220 of the deaths as of late Wednesday, according to the military.

Nearly 190,000 people remained in evacuation centers, the NDRRMC said. Power was cut to several areas, the Civil Defense Office said.
