At least nine people have been killed in the Philippines and 11 were missing on Tuesday (October 12) due to floods and landslides caused by heavy rain from the cyclone, the national disaster agency said.

Kompasu, with maximum sustained winds of 100 kilometers (62 miles) per hour, had absorbed remnants of an earlier cyclone before making landfall in the Philippines on Monday (October 11) evening.

Nearly 1,600 people were evacuated.
