The world's biggest typhoon this year did not spare the Philippines even in the time of COVID-19.

Super Typhoon Rolly made landfall in Catanduanes on November 1, 2020 and quickly swept westward through at least seven other provinces before exiting on the same day to the West Philippine Sea.

But on a day traditionally reserved by Filipinos to honoring their dead loved ones, the typhoon threatened to add more to that list. 

Before the end of All Saint's Day, Rolly left at least 10 people dead and close to 400,000 displaced by its fury.
