“It sucks to see how many people are losing what they had and ending up in shelter homes and it’s sad to see that people are missing too,” freshmen Deborah Lassends said.

A typhoon hit ashore at northeastern Aurora in the Philippines. The typhoon left at least 11 people dead and forced more than 65,000 people to leave their homes.

Philippines is prone to natural disasters like typhoons because it is geographically located along the Pacific region near the Equator which is prone to tropical cyclones and storms.

“It’s considered to be the most vulnerable large nation on earth for tropical cyclones,” a weather and climate science blogger for Weather Underground, Bob Henson said.

By Monday Koppu, the typhoon had weakened into a tropical storm with winds of 65 miles per hour and gusts of up to 84 mph.

“Hundreds of soldiers, police and volunteers have converged on Nueva Ecija, a landlocked, rice-growing province in the heart of Luzon island, to help villagers whose homes had been flooded,” from the Office of Civil Defense Nigel Lontoc said.

“It sucks to see how many people are losing what they had and ending up in shelter homes and it’s sad to see that people are missing too,” freshmen Deborah Lassends said.

Volunteers and crew members have been helping people that are trapped in their homes and other areas. A couple of parts in the Philippines were under three feet of water early Monday and around 20,000 people remained in emergency shelters.

“It’s nice to see everyone coming together and helping with the recovery of the damaged places,” junior Kayla Morrell said.
