THE EFFECT ON THEM
Resorts at major destinations have cancellation rates of 30 to 40 per cent since the storm hit, the cancellations are still coming in as they recover.
HOW THEY COPED:
They wouldn't lose too much money because they only lost 30 to 40 per cent of their visitors since the storm hit but they would of had to pay money to fix the damage.
HOW THEY RECOVERED
They took their houses off stilts and put blocks under their homes and hotels instead, bringing back the customers. The income helped them pay for more extensive repair, and better living in homes/hotels. The typhoon was a major setback, but helped them improve their homes so they could get ready for another one.
