Picking up the pieces from Typhoon Hagupit

Typhoon Hagupit (Ruby) moved through the central Philippines on Monday, leaving flooded streets, downed communication and power lines, and shattered homes in its wake.

At least 20 people were reported killed, according to the Philippine National Red Cross. The typhoon caused less damage compared to the destruction wrought by Typhoon Haiyan in November last year, but authorities said at least one million people were affected by the latest typhoon.

Heavy rains on Monday continued to threaten the norther part of the country, including the capital Manila, which is home to about 12 million people. The national weather bureau downgraded the typhoon to a tropical storm with winds of up to 100km/h, as authorities continued to warn residents of possible flash floods, landslides and storm surges around Manila.
