MANILA, Philippines — The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) on Monday said it has limited communication in Catanduanes after Typhoon Rolly damaged communication lines in the province.

NDRRMC spokesperson Mark Timbal said their communication with disaster managers in Bato, Catanduanes, where Rolly first made a landfall Sunday morning, were limited to satellite calls or radio communication.

“There has been quite a number of damages encountered in that particular area. Even in the power posts as well as the communication towers have been severely damaged.”
