Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 10) —  Typhoon Domeng exited the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) on Sunday, leaving two dead and several sea travelling passengers stranded.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) reported one death. The victim was identified as Algernon Dalisam Nuñez from El Nido, Palawan, who was initially reported missing when his jetski toppled over due to the strong current.

"The victim reportedly died from drowning when he fell from a jet ski at the sea," the NDRRMC said.

Found by an African national Saturday on the shore, Nuñez's body was positively identified by his family and the staff of the Orange Pearl Resort where he worked.

The second death was of 24-year-old fisherman Aljun Camano, as reported by the police unit in Molinao, Albay.

Camano had been missing for two hours before rescuers found his body at sea. He had gone fishing with his older brother Larry and reportedly jumped into the water to fix the net. He did not surface.

Meanwhile, a total of 72 passengers, two vessels and several motorbancas were stranded in the ports of Legazpi and Rapu-rapu, Albay during the typhoon.

Ports in Oriental Mindoro suspended their operations due to the storm.

In the National Capital Region (NCR) and CALABARZON, 43 barangays were reportedly flooding, while eight municipalities in Batangas experienced power interruptions last night.

There were 10 incidents of collapsed riprap, flash floods, overflowing spillways, air mishaps and uprooted trees reported from CALABARZON, MIMAROPA, CARAGA AND NCR Fortunately, there were no casualties.

Domeng had intensified from a tropical storm to a typhoon yesterday before leaving the PAR.

The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) continues to warn against sea travel in the northern and eastern seaboards of Northern Luzon, the seaboards of Central Luzon, and the western and southern seaboards of Southern Luzon.
