IN PHOTOS: ‘Lawin’ aftermath in Cagayan

/ 05:34 PM October 20, 2016

Supertyphoon “Lawin” (international name: Haima) smashed into the province of Cagayan on Wednesday evening, toppling trees and electrical posts and destroying houses and establishments.

Lawin, the strongest typhoon to hit the Philippines this year, forced thousands of residents to evacuate before hitting land in the mountainous area of southern Cagayan. The landfall left a picture of devastation.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said at least seven people were killed following the typhoon’s onslaught in northern Luzon.

Lawin was reminiscent of the winds brought by Supertyphoon “Yolanda,” the strongest typhoon to ever hit the Philippines, and the strongest to make landfall in recent history. YG/rga
