MANILA - Felled posts and trees, ripped off roofs, flooded streets.

Typhoon Ompong (international name: Mangkhut) left such devastation in Baggao, Cagayan, where it made landfall early Saturday at peak winds.

Officials said 100 percent of the town's crops and 30 percent of its structures were destroyed.

There were no immediate reports of fatalities.

The town has no mobile phone signal or power as electrical posts were knocked down during the onslaught of the storm, whose winds peaked at more than 200 kph as it approached land.

Here are among the first photos from the typhoon's ground zero:
