Filipino reporter goes viral for doing live report while braving strong typhoon


An ABS-CBN reporter is now making the rounds on social media after a series of photos of him reporting in the middle of a strong typhoon posted online. 

The reporter, Dennis Datu, was seen wearing a face mask, braving the strong winds, and being battered by typhoon Quinta.

In another photo, Datu is seen being assisted by two crewmen as he gave updates regarding the situation. 

The fast-moving typhoon has left the Philippines with at least 13 people missing, including dozen fishermen. 

At least 25,000 residents were also displaced with about 2,000 taking shelter in schools and government buildings.
