About The Gallery

Typhoon Vamco, the eighth to hit the Philippines in the past two months and 21st of the year, has already caused heavy flooding and taken thrirty nine lives. Residents were forced to climb on the rooftops of their homes and await rescue after tens of thousands of homes were submerged. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte cut short his attendance of a virtual meeting of Southeast Asian leaders to inspect the damage from Typhoon Vamco, moments after a speech during which he urged his counterparts to urgently combat the effects of climate change.
