According to the latest news (AFP), Typhoon “Juan,” the 10th and strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines this year (2010) leaved 10 people dead.


Filipino villagers make their way through typhoon Megi's strong winds and rain in Isabela province, northern Philippines, 18 October 2010. Weather officials said typhoon Megi is the strongest storm in 2010. Around 3,000 residents were evacuated from low lying and coastal areas in the northern provinces

Four people were killed on Monday in Pangasinan province, three of them by a collapsed structure and the other by lightning, national Red Cross spokesman Alex Rosete said.

Three other people drowned in a storm surge that smashed the coastal town of Maconacon in Isabela province, which bore the brunt of Megi's fury on Monday, provincial governor Faustino Dy said.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council had earlier reported three people killed elsewhere in the north of Luzon, the Philippines' main island.
