MANILA, Philippines — The wrath of Severe Tropical Storm Paeng (international name: Nalgae) has left several cottages near beach areas damaged, according to the Department of Tourism (DOT).

Basiao Beach in Ivisan, Capiz, and Laylay Port suffered “severe damage” to cottages as Paeng dumped heavy rains the weekend before the national observance of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, the DOT noted.
