Abstract: Typhoon Uring passed over the Island of Leyte on 5 November 1991 on an east to west track north of Tacloban City and Ormoc City. The center of the typhoon was at the midpoint of the Island about 10:00 a.m. and took 3 to 4 hr to pass across the Island width. Widespread damage from flooding was left in its wake. The Coastal Plain from Ormoc City at the north to Baybay at the south situated at the western side of the Island received major damages. The Ormoc watershed and Ormoc City were the hardest hit areas.
