MANILA, Philippines — Batanes was left with extensive damage to its structures like government offices, schools, and homes after Typhoon Kiko pummeled the country’s northernmost province.

Photos sent to INQUIRER.net by Opal Bala on Monday showed the provincial capitol’s roofing being removed after strong typhoon winds lashed the province. A substantial portion of the Batanes National Science Highschool’s roofing was also gone.
