Philippine President Benigno Aquino on Friday visited communities devastated by a deadly typhoon, and vowed to work to find ways to prevent storm disasters.

Nearly 500 people were killed in the storm which tore across southern Mindanao island and devastated its banana-growing and mining industries.

Typhoon Bopha slammed into the southern Philippines on Tuesday, leaving hundreds dead or missing and making 306,000 people homeless as it flattened whole towns.
