Robredo visits typhoon-devastated areas in Bicol region

By CNN Philippines Staff

Vice President Leni Robredo on Monday visited areas badly hit by typhoon Rolly in the Bicol region.

Robredo’s first stop was in Camarines Sur, with the official sharing on her social media account some snaps of the damaged houses and fallen electric posts in the vicinity.

“Left Manila before dawn today. Just arrived CamSur and these were the first signs of devastation we saw,” Robredo wrote in a tweet.

She also visited the Sabang National High School in Calabanga town — a current evacuation center that has incurred damage following Rolly’s wrath on Sunday.

The Vice President added she will be going around Albay and Catanduanes during the trip.

Relief packs will also be sent to affected areas in the region, Robredo’s office said in a separate statement.

Albay was one of the four areas where Rolly (international name: Goni) made landfall over the weekend. Dubbed as the strongest storm of 2020, Rolly has left at least 16 people dead in its wake.
