LANAO DEL SUR --- The strong tornado that ripped through five barangays in Marawi City Monday destroyed 43 houses, an auditorium, seven classrooms and a private vehicle, officials said Tuesday.

Key members of the Lanao del Sur provincial disaster risk reduction and management council said the office of Gov. Mamintal Adiong, Jr. is now attending to the needs of affected residents.

The strong tornado struck five barangays in Marawi City --- Sagonsongan, Barrio Fort, Bangon, Green and Saber --- whose residents are yet to fully recover from the May 23 to August 16, 2019 conflict that ravaged their villages, instigated by the Maute terror group.

Marawi City is the capital of Lanao del Sur, a component-province of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.
