Ursula, the country's 21st and potentially last storm this year made landfall over Salcedo, Eastern Samar at 4:45 p.m.

The storm's entry has stranded thousands in ports hoping to go home to their provinces for Christmas as sea travel in areas at risk has been barred. 

Several areas in Visayas and Luzon have also been placed under tropical cyclone wind signal no. 3.
