As of 17 December, the Philippines Disaster Response Operations Monitoring and Information Centre (DROMIC) had reported 1,127,041 houses as having been damaged, of which 548,793 were totally destroyed by the typhoon. These figures were largely estimates, however, based on initial information provided by municipal officials.
