People return home Wednesday in Quezon, north of Manila, Philippines, as water from Typhoon Rammasun covers the streets. The storm, while weaker than expected, caused dozens of deaths and widespread power disruptions.

A typhoon that barreled through the northern Philippines left at least 38 people dead, knocked out power in entire provinces and forced more than half a million people to flee its lethal wind and rains, officials said today.
