Many Filipinos need help after Typhoon Odette destroyed their homes and communities
The first landfall was in northeastern Mindanao packing maximum sustained winds of 195 km/h.
The typhoon made landfall at least nine times from December 16 to 17, triggering forced evacuations and leaving swaths of destruction in parts of the Visayas and Mindanao. It also affected power lines, causing blackouts in several areas.
In Western Visayas, four deaths in Iloilo and Guimaras were caused by trees that toppled over and crushed homes during the height of the typhoon.
Typhoon Odette intensified into a super typhoon right before its landfall in the southeastern part of the country. The provinces that were severely affected are Agusan del Norte, Bohol, Cagayan de Oro, Lanao del Sur, Negros Occidental, Palawan, and Southern Leyte.
Thousands were asked to evacuate for safety because of the strong winds and flooding in many areas, and several families lost their homes. Negros Occidental, Palawan, and Tacloban have no access to electricity and roads are blocked with debris. Communication is difficult in several areas across the regions.
