One dead, over 212,000 displaced as typhoon batters Philippines

Manila: At least one person was killed and more than 212,000 people were displaced as Typhoon Kammuri battered the eastern Philippines on Monday, officials said.
More than 4,100 people were also stranded at seaports in the eastern region of Bicol, after the coastguard prevented ferries from setting sail due to the stormy seas.
One person in Bicol was electrocuted and died, according to Major Ma Luisa Calubaquib, a regional police spokeswoman. No other details were immediately available.
Of those displaced, almost half - 108,168 - were residents of Albay province, one of the areas where Kammuri was expected to make landfall on Monday evening or early on Tuesday, according to the weather bureau. (DPA)
