The typhoon, known locally as Typhoon Rolly, passed over the south of the country’s main island Luzon, causing heavy rainfall, flooding and landslides, before weakening as it skirted the edges of the capital of Manila.
“The number of affected (is) 372,653 families or 2,068,085 individuals. Ten are dead and one injured. Cost of damage is still being assessed,” NDRRMC spokesman Ricardo Jalad said Monday.
Among the missing is believed to be a five-year-old boy who was washed away in flood waters.
In advance of the storm making landfall, officials evacuated almost a million residents in the southern part of the Philippines’ main island of Luzon.
There had been concerns ahead of Goni’s arrival that it could severely impact the Philippines capital.
As of Sunday, at least 2,420 families were preemptively evacuated in Metro Manila, the NDRRMC said in a tweet.
A Philippines Coast Guard aircraft is being deployed to Catanduanes island, the NDRRMC added, where cell towers toppled from the typhoon, CNN affiliate CNN Philippines reported.
NDRRMC spokesman Ricardo Jalad said that relief flights carrying food and supplies will be deployed to Catanduanes and Legazpi City on Monday and Tuesday.
Goni is one of the strongest storms to hit the Philippines since 2013’s Haiyan, which killed more than 6,300 people.
The Philippines weather bureau said another cyclone, tropical storm Atsani, had entered the country and could gain strength.
