Typhoon Goni, known locally as Typhoon ‘Rolly’, is the strongest storm to hit the Philippines this year. Goni made landfall as a super typhoon at Catanduanes island on Sunday at 04:50 local time (19:50 GMT Saturday) with strong winds of 225km/h (140mph). It made its way through Luzon, to the South of Manila and out to the South China Sea by early Monday morning in the Philippines.
The concentration of the damage is mostly in the Bicol region, which is located in the southern part of Luzon island. There have been reports of power supply outages, blown off roofs, damage to infrastructure and flash flooding across various parts of the island. There have been 10 casualties reported with three people missing. Our Crawford Philippines employees are currently safe and are actively reaching out to our clients to offer assistance. We have adjusters on the ground and ready to help.
