    cheers for the updates indeed, i am yet to hear from our bro in law in dauin, but probably due to the brown out and phone signal, this is quite a relief hearing it was not as bad as expected indeed.....

    Hope there is no dead people from the typhoon in The DGTE Area. Have a lot of family there. And hope soon the Dumaguete members are telling us the story about the damage nearby.

    From the latest image it looks like it's going to turn around and give us another @ss kicking. Maybe it heard you guys with all the talk about "weak" and "nothing like Sendong."

    I just got my power and internet back on. It was strong here. The PNP said they clocked the wind at 220kph in Agan An. It looks to me that there was more damage here than other area's. Lucky not too much damage to my house.

    Still a lot of suffering going on in eastern Mindanao...:

    Isolated Philippine typhoon victims running out of food

    "Isolated communities in the Philippines including hill tribes are facing hunger a week after a typhoon struck, and with roads blocked, supplies will have to be dropped by air, authorities said on Tuesday. Typhoon Bopha killed 714 people and caused crop damage worth 10.3 billion pesos ($250 million) when it hit on Tuesday last week. Nearly 900 people are unaccounted for and about 2,000 were injured, the national disaster agency said. The most intense storm to hit the disaster-prone Philippines this year wiped out communities near the coast in the southern provinces of Davao Oriental and Compostela Valley."
