President Rodrigo Duterte on Saturday conducted an aerial inspection of some of the areas hit by Typhoon Odette.

Senator Christopher "Bong" Go, a longtime aide to Duterte, shared photos and videos of the inspection, which covered Siargao, Surigao City, the Dinagat Islands, and Maasin City in Southern Leyte. 

Duterte also had meetings with the local government officials of these areas.  

The President will visit Bohol and Cebu provinces on Sunday, according to Go.

Thirty-one people were reported to have died while 373,110 others were affected following the typhoon's onslaught, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said on Saturday afternoon.
