IN PHOTOS: Typhoon Quinta destroys houses, floods parts of Bicol and Mindoro

Due to the intense wind and rain brought by Typhoon Quinta (Molave) on the wee hours of Monday, October 26, houses in different parts of Bicol and Mindoro Island were destroyed or submerged in massive floods. 

The typhoon has made its landfall five times, first being in San Miguel Island, Tabaco City, Albay at 6:10 pm on October 25. The rest of the typhoon’s landfalls were in the provinces of Albay, Quezon, Marinduque, and Oriental Mindoro.

Bicol region and Mindoro Island were among the areas severely impacted by the typhoon. 

The typhoon has caused intense rains and winds resulting in sturdy trees falling on top of houses in Dangay, Roxas, Oriental Mindoro.

Meanwhile, several houses in Legazpi, Albay were submerged in chest-high floods. Residents struggled to make sure their furniture and other important items will not be reached by the flood, since most of the dry spaces in the area was already submerged in water.

Other parts of Luzon and Eastern Visayas were not spared from Typhoon Quinta's wrath.

On the streets of Lucena City in Quezon province, the trees planted on the sidewalks were also blown away by the intense winds of the typhoon. As of Monday morning, Lucena City's Engineering Office and the City General Services Office have launched a clearing operation to make the city streets passable.

The roof and the walls of a house in Agoncillo, Batangas were also destroyed due to Typhoon Quinta’s winds

As early as October 25, several areas in the Visayas regions have been experiencing knee-deep floods in their area, such as in Sitio Tigbe, Purok 1, Barangay Capoocan in Calbayog City, Samar.

A rice field in Barangay Magdalena, Claveria, Cagayan has been flooded, causing the owner to lose his harvest and source of livelihood.

According to the 11 am bulletin of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration on October 26, Typhoon Quinta has crossed the island of Mindoro and into the West Philippine Sea on Monday morning. –Rappler.com
