COTABATO CITY, Philippines—A tornado struck a coastal section of the municipality of Parang, Maguindanao, on Thursday afternoon destroying at least 25 houses in the village of Polloc, an official said.

He said villagers first noticed a thunderstorm and a buildup of thick black clouds over the village at about 3 p.m. then a very strong wind hit the barangay, blowing away huts, corrugated rooking sheets, plastic materials and tree trunks.
