Footage shows damage from Typhoon Choi-wan, in the town of Maasin in Southern Leyte, the Philippines, on June 1.
Devastated resident Cerro Evelyn said: ‘I never thought that the plants that I was selling and our truck would be damaged due to a storm like that. We are now back to zero again.’
Storm Choi-wan, locally called Dante, left at least nine dead and one missing after lashing out across regions in the Luzon island. It exited the country on Saturday (June 5) before dissipating into a tropical depression.
The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council said the storm caused over 86 million pesos in damage to agriculture and 53.7 million pesos to infrastructure.
