Storm Kills 22 in the Philippines

Typhoon Hagupit weakened into a tropical storm Monday as it continued its slow march across the Philippines, leaving at least 22 people dead in its wake according to Red Cross.

The storm was packing maximum sustained winds of 53mph with gusts of 62 mph when it reached the resort town of San Juan on the main island of Luzon, about 60 miles south of the capital, Manila.

By late Monday it had weakened further, but government officials warned that it could still trigger dangerous storm surges, flash floods and landslides.
