Photo | December 13, 2012

As the number of dead bodies keep piling up, mass graves had to be dug up in Baranggay Poblacion, Compostela Valley. Around 780 people are still missing after the province was hit by Typhoon Bopha. Bopha is the most southerly typhoon e recorded in the western Pacific Ocean, and the second strong typhoon to have hit southern Philippines in 2 years. Scientists predicted years ago that human-caused climate change would result in abnormally severe extreme weather events. The past few years have seen the Philippines, and other parts of the world, struggle to cope with the effects of drastically altered weather patterns. Pablo has left more than 1,500 people either dead or missing and has left at least PHP 14.30 billion in damages.
