AFTERMATH: Typhoon Rolly leaves massive destruction

MANILA, Philippines – Even as Typhoon Rolly exits mainland Luzon landmass to emerge over the West Philippine Sea on Sunday night, it has left a huge trail of massive destruction to many areas in the Philippines.

Catanduanes, Camarines Norte, and Camarines Sur suffered the full brunt of Super Typhoon Rolly’s wrath.

Albay, Quezon, Aurora, Sorsogon, Northern Samar, Marinduque, and lots of other areas are deep in flood waters.

There are also places that suffered from storm surge while other areas were buried in mud and lahar.

In photos shared by Renz Adrian Ronda, only the roofs of houses in Camalig, Albay could be seen as everything else were covered with the flood. Strong winds were also blowing on the trees, leading to a number of coconut trees losing plenty of fronds.

The government is yet to post how much destruction the super typhoon has left in its wake or the total number of casualties.But aside from the direct effects of the super typhoon, many were also concerned that the limited spaces in the evacuation areas could pose a bigger threat as the country continues to battle the deadly COVID-19 pandemic.
