IN PHOTOS: Floods, fallen trees in Ilocos Sur
ILOCOS SUR, Philippines – The province of Ilocos Sur was among those badly affected when Lawin (Haima) hit land as a super typhoon.
When Lawin made landfall in Cagayan late Wednesday evening, October 19, Ilocos Sur had been under signal number 4.
The national road in Ilocos Sur leading further north to Vigan City and Ilocos Norte has been flooded. Fallen trees and other debris also line the road.

In the city of Candon, a diversion road was opened so vehicles which encountered deeper floods elsewhere could still pass.
The municipality of Narvacan also suffered flooding. Take a look at the situation there on Thursday in the photos below.
In these changing times, courage and clarity become even more important.
