Picking up the pieces

Residents stand among debris next to a huge crucifix blown from a church after it was destroyed at the height of Typhoon Ambo in Arteche town, Eastern Samar on Friday, a day after the storm hit the town. The typhoon, which has since weakened into a severe tropical storm, has dumped heavy rains and torn off roofs since it roared ashore on central Samar island on May 14, with hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people in its path on the coast or in flimsy homes.
