A tropical depression that has weakened into a low pressure area brought rains to the central Visayas islands and Mindanao, the main southern island, according to the government weather station.Cold monsoon winds blowing from the northeast brought rains to Luzon, the main northern island, where large farming communities have been submerged in mostly waist-deep floods from Typhoon Melor, which hit at the start of the week.Areas inundated by Melor have barely recovered from floods brought by Typhoon Koppu in October.The death toll after a week of devastating weather has risen to 35, according to confirmed reports from national and local disaster monitoring agencies.
