MANILA, Philippines –Typhoon Egay (Doksuri) devastated communities in northern parts of Luzon after its landfall on Wednesday, July 26.
Egay, the country’s fifth tropical cyclone in 2023, brought intense rain and winds as it strengthened into a super typhoon on Tuesday, July 25, and weakened to a typhoon the same day. Areas around several regions in the Visayas, Southern Luzon, and Metro Manila also braced the effects of the onslaught.
Seeing the aftermath left by the typhoon, several groups and organizations are conducting donation and relief drive initiatives to help those affected.
