Tropical storm “Quinta” (internationally known as "Wukong"), the last storm the Philippines is set to experience in 2012, has weakened into a low pressure area after entering Visayas on December 26.

According to, hundreds of people have been evacuated in Leyte even before the typhoon hit the coastal town of Abuyog on the eve of December 25. They have since returned to their homes.

In a separate article, also reports that the constant rains that have pelted Albay the past day also caused two of Legazpi City’s main rivers to overflow, submerging 15 villages. Landslides and flash floods were also reported to have occurred in the province’s other towns.

At least four people were reported killed and three others are missing due to the storm, which also left around 6,000 people stranded in various seaports after the Philippine Coast Guard prohibited ships and other vessels from sailing. 41 flights to and from Manila were also canceled because of the typhoon, affecting hundreds of passengers.

“Quinta” is expected to leave the country by the evening of December 27, continuing westward across the West Philippine Sea.
