Article Photos: Philippines Typhoon 117/140

A rare cloud formation is seen amidst destroyed banana plantation four days after typhoon Bopha left hundreds of people killed and rendered extensive damage to agriculture at Montevista township, Compostela Valley in southern Philippines Saturday Dec. 8, 2012. Search and rescue operations following typhoon that killed nearly 600 people in the southern Philippines have been hampered in part because many residents of this ravaged farming community are too stunned to assist recovery efforts, an official said Saturday.
