MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo personally went to Calabanga town in Camarines Sur on Monday afternoon to check on Super Typhoon Rolly’s devastation in the area and bring relief to affected families.

Based on photos shared by the Office of the Vice President (OVP), Robredo went to Sabang National High School, where evacuees sought shelter as Rolly slammed their municipality.

The school’s structure, however, was also damaged by the typhoon – dubbed as the world’s strongest so far this year as some of the classrooms’ ceilings collapsed while other rooms lost its roofings.

“According to barangay officials, several classrooms were damaged during the wrath of the typhoon while evacuees were staying there. The OVP also brought relief assistance to the community,” the OVP said in a statement.
