Urduja (international name: Kai-tak) made landfall in Taytay town on the northeastern tip of Palawan early Monday, and was forecast to exit the Philippine area of responsibility on Tuesday.

The storm triggered floods and landslides that killed at least 26 people and forced tens of thousands to evacuation centers.
