Just a few days before Christmas, tropical storm “Urduja” entered the Philippine area of responsibility and ripped through the Visayas provinces, packing strong winds and heavy rains.

In the photos provided by the district office of the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) in Tacloban City, Urduja torn off the ceilings of most establishments and mangled several roofing sheets.
