MANDAUE CITY, Philippines – To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the Mandaue City Police Bureau distributed relief items and 10 liters of drinking water to families who lost loved ones to Super Typhoon Odette.
They also offered songs and flowers to the families.
In Mandaue town, specifically in Sitio Sudlon, Barangay Maguikay, seven people have died after the concrete fence of a warehouse near their homes collapsed due to high winds brought by the super typhoon.
The seven individuals belonged to two families.
