President Rodrigo Roa Duterte paid a visit to the Municipality of Guinobatan in Albay and conducted an aerial inspection of localities following the onslaught of Typhoon ‘Rolly’ (international name: ‘Goni’).

‘Rolly’, the world’s strongest typhoon in 2020 so far, was a super typhoon that battered communities in the Southern part of Luzon, particularly the Bicol region, and other areas after making several landfalls beginning early November 1, 2020.

According to the latest reports by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST), ‘Rolly’ has weakened into a tropical storm over the West Philippine Sea and is expected to leave the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) in the morning of November 3, 2020.
