Damage Report

  • at least 100 people doed during the storm, mostly because of landslides and floods.
  • Trees, billboards and electric posts fell off their foundation from so much stress brought on by the strong winds. one person was killed by a fallen billboard.
  • because of the downfall of the trees, billboards and electric posts, virtually the whole Luzon had its power cut off. Many lives were screwed, many plans were derailed, many business closed down because of the blackout. even the philippine stock exchange dangled to nostalgia.
  • more than a billion pesos (US$ 300 million?) damage was recorded.
  • strong winds also caused some vehicles to topple down, if not blown away to somewhere else. three (?) people died.
