MANILA, Philippines– Uprooted trees, fallen electrical posts, and damaged structures across Bicol marked Typhoon Tisoy’s (Kammuri) trail of destruction on Tuesday, December 3, as fierce winds and heavy rains battered the region.

Legazpi Airport in Albay, one of major airports in Bicol, sustained heavy damage due to the powerful typhoon, along with SM City Legazpi.

The mall said in a statement on Wednesday, December 4 that it “incurred minor damage to isolated portions of the building facade during Typhoon Tisoy.”

“No one was hurt during the entire incident,” it added.

Tisoy made landfall in Gubat, Sorsogon, at 11 pm on Monday, December 2.

Luisito Mendoza, a Gubat disaster officer, said that while authorities were still assessing the damage in the town, the initial reports they received indicated extensive damage.

“There is one place where water levels reached the roof…. Our own personnel got hit by shattered glass,” he said, adding that many trees and power poles were felled by wind.

At least 162,122 Bicolanos have been displaced due to Tisoy, according to the Department of Social Welfare and Development-Bicol disaster response update as of 12 midnight on December 2.
