Typhoon Glenda rips through Bicol

Typhoon Glenda, also known by its international name Rammasun, lashed the Bicol region last Tuesday, battering houses and buildings, knocking down electrical posts, and wiping out entire fields of crops.

Glenda, which is said to be the strongest storm to hit the Philippines this year, prompted the evacuation of residents living in flood- and storm surge-prone areas across the country. In Bicol, the Office of Civil Defense-Regional Diaster Risk Reducation and Management Council (OCD-DRRMC) reported that some 500,000 individuals were evacuated.

The office also recorded three casualties in the island province of Catanduanes and three injured in Masbate City.
