MANILA - Not even the final resting place of dead in Baguio City was spared by the heavy rains and strong winds brought by typhoon Ompong (Mangkhut) over the weekend. 

At least 50 graves inside the Baguio Public Cemetery were destroyed by Ompong, the strongest typhoon to hit the country so far this year. Some trees in the graveyard were also felled.

Baguio was one of the areas in Northern Luzon hit hard by the typhoon. At least 3 people were reported missing after Ompong triggered landslides in one of the city's mountainside villages.

Floods in Baguio City were also reported over the weekend.--report by Micaella Ilao, ABS-CBN News
