At least 25 people were reported to have died while six others were missing as tropical storm "Agaton" pounded Eastern Visayas and other parts of the country with heavy rains. 

Most of the fatalities were from Eastern Visayas, with the police saying that 22 people have so far been confirmed to have died due to landslides that hit Baybay City in Leyte.

Brig. Gen. Bernie Banac, director of the Eastern Visayas regional police, said the cadavers of those who died in the landslides in Baybay City were already recovered as of Monday afternoon. 

A total of sixteen died in Barangay. Mailhi, two in Barangay Maypatag, one in Barangay Bunga, and three in Barangay San Agustin based on the report of the city police chief. 

Banac said at least people are still missing and are now the subject of search and rescue operations.

Three other people were reported dead in Davao de Oro and Davao Oriental based on separate police reports. 

Banac said more than 5,000 people were also evacuated due to the flash flood and landslides that hit the region.
