MANILA, Philippines — Typhoon Odette (international name: Rai) did not spare Palawan province from destruction as its powerful winds knocked off houses, cut electricity supply, and limited telecommunications lines

Odette, reportedly the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines this year, battered vast portions of Visayas, Mindanao, and Luzon last week, affecting nearly two million people.
