Post-typhoon clean up begins in Philippines

Updated 17 July 2014, 13:13 AEST

A clean up is under way in the Philippines after the battering inflicted by Typhoon Rammasun.

It was the most powerful storm to hit the country this year, passing just south of the capital Manila as it carved a path across the main island of Luzon.

Unlike last year, when Super Typhoon Haiyan killed thousands, the death toll this time has been put at around 20.

Australia is among those to have offered emergency relief supplies.

Presenter: Sen Lam

Speaker: Orla Fagan, spokeswoman for the United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Manila.
