Most of the deaths caused by a Christmas typhoon in the Pacific island nation came from drowning, falling trees, and accidental electrocution. Typhoon Phanfone first made landfall on Eastern Samar province late on Christmas Eve. It then raged across seven coastal towns and island provinces on Christmas Day, destroying remote villages, tourist areas, and electrical poles in its wake. At least 28 people are dead and 12 are missing.
