MANILA, Philippines – Packing winds rarely felt in southern Philippines, Typhoon “Pablo,” which made landfall on Tuesday, December 4, brought back memories of an unprecedented disaster amid Christmas revelry in 2011.

Twitter user Irene (@mindanaoan) said she was crying in fear due to Pablo, which is stronger than Tropical Storm “Sendong” that killed over 1,400 people in 2011. A Cagayan de Oro-based blogger, she called Pablo “the most terrifying typhoon” she has encountered.

Twitter user Kenny Nodalo (@kenodalo), who lives in downtown Davao City, said the wind “is getting fiercer each minute.” He said he fears for people who live beside Davao’s Matina River.

With the help of netizens, Rappler gathered other images of Pablo’s effects. Here are some of them:
