According to the Government’s Natural Disaster Council, about 2,50,000 people in Luzon have been affected and the numbers are just rising.

Jerome Balinton, a spokesman for Save the Children, who was also in Luzon said, “The further north we traveled the more extensive the damage, particularly in Cagayan province. House after house had been flattened or badly damaged, with roofs or walls missing. Large trees have been uprooted from the ground and power poles bent right over, leaving power lines strewn across the ground. In some areas where the eye of the storm hit, it seems as if nothing has been left undamaged.”

In Philippines, a small mining town of Itogon witnessed the death of 33 miners as they got buried under the landslide.

The Mangkhut typhoon is expected to weaken by tomorrow. Authorities have issued a warning urging people to stay indoors and away from windows.
