As of this writing, Typhoon Bopha has wreaked havoc in the Philippines. It landed on Tuesday at Banganga, Davao Oriental. And has been all over the country since then. Leaving millions of damages and at least a hundred casualties in Mindanao, specifically the East Coast (Cateel and Banganga in Davao Oriental) and in Compostela Valley.
PAGASA (Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration) reported as of 4pm today that Bopha’s eye is in Northwest Roxas, Northern Palawan. I pray that it will no longer hurt anyone until it leaves the country on Friday. 😦
My family and I did an East Coast trip on the holy week of 2011. I took some pictures then which I treasure until now. The place looked so beautiful, I can’t believe it’s in ruins now.

These are just partial photos of Bopha’s result in Davao Oriental. 😦
We are going to Compostela Valley soon to give relief goods. Hopefully, I will be able to give you a better perspective after that.
For now, I am asking all of you my online friends to please pray for the Philippines. Specially for the victims and to those who have lost their loved ones. 😦
