LOOK: Batanes meets the 'rock star' President
The tiny island of Batanes was hit by typhoon "Ferdie" which incurred an estimated damage pegged at P800 million.
The visit was originally scheduled days ago but was moved due to severe weather condition.
Duterte, which was accompanied by several of his cabinet members tasked to rehabilitate the area, was met by thousands of eager locals.
President Duterte, in his speech, stressed that he doesn't politicize helping the people he sworn to serve and that he's always ready to extend help even to those who didn't vote for him. It can be remembered that Duterte lost in Batanes in the last elections.
Duterte flew to Batanes to personally assess the devastation brought by typhoon 'Ferdie' to the tiny island of Batanes and provided assistance to those who were gravely affected by the typhoon.
