MANILA - Seven people have been confirmed killed from the onslaught of typhoon Saola (also named typhoon Gener) in the Philippines, the Philippine STAR reports. Several others are still missing.

Philippines' National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council told the Philippine Daily Inquirer that 8,298 families or 40,477 persons in 14 provinces were affected by the tropical storm that strengthened into a typhoon late Monday, adding that about 20,000 persons were displaced and had to be welcomed in government-run evacuation centers.

Typhoon Saola is expected to leave the Philippines' area and fade away in the direction of Taiwan by Thursday – altough heavy to torrential rains, together with strong to gale force winds, will continue to ravage the region for the next couple of days, with risks of flashfloods and landslides.
