At least 12 people are missing and another 12,000 are affected by Typhoon Conson in the Philippines, emergency services said.

Conson entered the Philippine archipelago Tuesday with sustained winds of 120 kilometers per hour and gusts up to 150 kilometers per hour.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said in a report that at least 24 homes were damaged by the typhoon, which caused flooding and power outages in several areas in the central archipelago.

Among the missing are fishermen who were at sea when the typhoon, called Jolina in the Philippines, arrived.

Authorities said the damage is not very severe at this time, while the typhoon has already weakened to a tropical storm and is expected to leave the country on Friday.

However, another typhoon called Chanthu – Kiko in the Philippines – is approaching, with winds of 150 km/h and gusts up to 185 km/h.
