MANILA. This season the Philippines have been hit even harder by severe typhoon damage. The effects are also clearly evident in the coconut industry.

Floods and power failures

The Philippines are already used to tropical storms - but this year the islands are particularly affected. In the past few days, "Vamco" was the third typhoon within a few weeks and the 21st tropical storm of the season, killing at least 53 people, many more are missing. In the capital Manila, the storm has caused the worst flooding in years, gusts of wind and heavy rain have caused extensive power cuts. This of course also has an effect on coconut production.
