MANILA, Philippines — No damage was sustained by  the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (Naia) after Typhoon Karding (international name: Noru) barreled through the country, the Manila International Airport Authority (MIAA) reported Monday.

The MIAA engineering and operations teams have conducted clearing operations at the airside and landside areas of Naia.

Runways and taxiways were also inspected for any debris, such as small bolts or equipment parts that may have been detached due to strong winds.

Apart from the trees that fell near Naia, no damage to property was recorded, the MIAA said.
