With mass evacuations in place for the severe typhoon, a number of celebrities who have resided in the island of Siargao are calling for aid for those affected by the storm.

"Praying for everyone's safety," the star wrote with a screencap video of Odette. She also shared a post from Pawssion Project urging citizens not to leave behind their pets when evacuating.
Meanwhile, Siargao-based couple Andi Eigenmann and Philmar Alipayo have also been sending updates from the island.
After reposting shots of the landfall, Alipayo shared on 3pm that electricity and signal had run out on the island.
Eigenmann had also shared that they had a cancelled flight amid the storm surge and urged others to pray for those affected.
"Cancelled flight going home due to super typhoon Odette. Receiving updates abt current damages happening in our home but also just very worried about our loved ones on the island," Eigenmann captioned on Instagram Stories. "Hope this passes soon."
