    Still hearing of the extreme damage through the media here in UK.
    Our thoughts are with those who are still suffering the consequences of the super storm.
    Our local Filipino community are looking at ways to help
    Meanwhile my wife has been in touch with her family affected by it.

    It doesn't really matter how they got here. They've made it perfectly clear that foreigners have no say in the way politics play out in the Philippines, simply being in the vicinity of a protest can get us deported. They can only blame themselves for the politicians they elect and only they can break the cycle of abuse that has been established. I hope they can figure it out.

    My wife saw Noreco working on the downed lines on Gomez St this morning. I am at the other end of Gomez so I can at least hope Noreco can do the repair and turn the power on soon.

    Merry Christmas. Power came back at 4:20pm yesterday, after Noreco fixed the down lines. Overall, Noreco performed great in this disaster.

    Finally checking in. Dec.26. Flood hit Tanjay almost waste deep at road level. Many near the River areas lost entire homes not solidly built. 7 days no power. Took about a 70,000 peso loss in items in one of my homes (which is not a great loss considering) Went for a road run to Bais City and it really is a disaster there. Appears closer to being wiped of the Map. Will be a long time to clean that City up. Debris is equally piled up on every street and took one of the highest death tolls.

    Sadly on Christmas day a Noreco Employee was electrocuted atop a pole amist repair and did loose his life.

    Just curious.
    Has anyone seen UNICEF or the Red Cross at any of the hard hit areas?

    Last month UNICEF was fund raising for Aid for Children in wartorn Zamboanga. Now it's homeless children due to Odette.

    If either of those organizations show up with anything besides thoughts and prayers please post a picture.

    Saw a Red Cross water tanker from Iloilo which I think was supplying Bais.
