WHY IT IS HARD TO GET HARDWOODS FOR BUILDING IN SAMAR-LEYTE: Hi everyone. I am a New Zealander living in Eastern Samar for 8 years now. It is appropriate to review building practices and materials here in the light of two supertypoons in the space of 56 weeks. There are many problems here, essentially poverty, corruption, lack of suitable building materials. The Government will not allow the milling of any native hardwood timber, so coconut is commonly used. It soon becomes rotten &/or infested with termites so it is useless as a long term building material. Steel roof trusses rust near the sea, and in any event are too light structurally. Typhoon Yolanda proved beyond a doubt that buildings with steel roof trusses lost their roofs, whilst those with bolted yakal hardwood roof trusses survived (mostly). Such hardwoods are only available on the blackmarket; or otherwise as salvaged timber when large trees are washed up on the beaches as at present. But Yakal is so heavy ('ironwood') it generally ...

Lawmaker lauds DILG for preemptive evacuations that saved thousands of lives MANILA, Dec. 10 (PNA) -- A ranking member of the Nationalist Peoples Coalition (NPC) on Wednesday lauded the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) for spearheading the preemptive evacuations in areas along the path of Typhoon Ruby (international name: Hagupit) that saved thousands of lives from the typhoon’s fury. Valenzuela City Rep. Sherwin Gatchalian specifically congratulated DILG Secretary Manuel Roxas II for being on the ground to lead and supervise the evacuation efforts and other preparations by local government units (LGUs) in Eastern Samar where Typhoon Ruby made its first landfall. “Secretary Roxas deserves to be commended for his efforts in ensuring that LGUs have learned their lesson from Typhoon Yolanda. And this they did by launching a massive evacuation operation days ahead of the storm, emptying whole towns and villages in coastal and landslide-prone areas,” Gatchalian, who is also a governor o ...
MAR, KORINA STUCK IN NEW TYPHOON RELATED CONTROVERSIES Written by Tribune Wires, Tuesday, 09 December 2014 Controversial political couple Interior Secretary Manuel Roxas II and news reader Korina Sanchez, Roxas; spouse, found themselves again the butt of criticism for their antics during a crisis situation. Sanchez angered members of the local social media community when she made an offside comment about her wish for Typhoon Ruby to spare the Philippines and vent its wrath on Japan instead. Roxas also trended in social media through a camera shot showing him bent over apparently after slipping in his motocross bike during a supposed inspection tour of areas hit by Typhoon Ruby in Eastern Samar raising criticisms on him for the apparent publicity stunt and his breach of the strict law on wearing a crash helmet in the process. Last year, in the aftermath of super typhoon Yolanda, Sanchez also received brickbats for comments she made on air about CNN reporter Anderson Cooper. Sanchez claimed the veteran CNN ...

By Erik de Castro DOLORES, Philippines (Reuters) - Typhoon Hagupit weakened to a tropical storm as it churned close to the Philippine capital on Monday, after killing 27 people on the eastern island of Samar island where it flattened homes, toppled trees and cut power and communications. Manila shut down as Hagupit, which means "lash" in Filipino, took aim at the tip of the main island Luzon, just south of the capital city of 12 million people. "We now have a total of 27 dead, most of them in Borongan, Eastern Samar," said Richard Gordon, chairman of the Philippine Red Cross, adding most of the dead drowned in floodwaters. He said around 2,500 houses were totally or partially destroyed in Borongan, a town of 64,000 people. But despite the rising death toll, there was relief that Hagupit had not brought destruction on the scale of super Typhoon Haiyan, which last year killed thousands of people in the same areas of the central Philippines. Hagupit roared in from the Pacific as a Category 3 typhoon on Satur ...

Powerful typhoon slams into eastern Philippines LEGAZPI, Philippines (AP) — Typhoon Hagupit slammed into the central Philippines' east coast late Saturday, knocking out power and toppling trees in a region where 650,000 people have fled to safety, still haunted by the massive death and destruction wrought by a monster storm last year. Packing maximum sustained winds of 175 kilometers (109 miles) per hour and gusts of 210 kph (130 mph), Hagupit made landfall in Dolores, a coastal town facing the Pacific in Eastern Samar province, according to the Philippines' weather agency. There were no immediate reports of casualties. December 7, 2014 Associated Press Although it was unlikely to reach the unprecedented strength of Typhoon Haiyan, Hagupit's strong winds and heavy rain were enough to possibly cause major damage to an impoverished region still reeling from the devastating November 2013 storm, which left more than 7,300 people dead or missing. "There are many trees that have toppled, some of them on the h ...

About 1 million people had already fled to shelters by the time Typhoon Hagupit made landfall, in what a United Nation agency said was one of the world's biggest peacetime evacuations. As the storm barreled in from the Pacific, power was cut across most of the central island of Samar and nearby L ...
Typhoon Hagupit sweeps across Philippines Typhoon Hagupit is sweeping across the eastern Philippines, toppling trees and power lines and threatening coastal areas with a powerful sea-surge. More than half a million people have fled coastal villages in the area, which was still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan last year. In Tacloban, where thousands were killed by Haiyan, roofs have been blown away and streets are flooded. But Hagupit does not appear to have been as severe as many had feared. So far there have been no reports of casualties. The BBC's Jonathan Head in Legazpi, about 200km (125 miles) north of Tacloban, said Hagiput was clearly a powerful storm but nowhere near as powerful as Haiyan. The authorities believed they were well prepared this time, he adds, but it could be some time before the extent of damage in more remote areas becomes clear. Officials told the BBC that lighter than expected rain meant there was less chance of landslides, but that the strong winds could still bring down trees on ...

Now: Typhoon is lashing Eastern Samar & beginning its drenching crawl toward Manila:
The government's Project NOAH on Wednesday said typhoon "Ruby" (international codename Hagupit) could bring storm surges in several areas in parts of the Visayas including Carigara and Babatngon in Leyte and Eastern Samar.
The world is written by God and He is the only one who can erase this pattern. Typhoons are made by people and God will give credits of what people did to His dearest biosphere. Exactly, we're the evil one who approached this kind of catastrophe. We made such stories of this planet. We endured every pain after the rain but after it, we failed to stand up once again. What God really want is a peaceful nation. How can we build this one? We should not lose hope. Time runs but opportunities always knock every second. Yeah! Let's worship the Lord first and then we should hold our hands to heal the world once again. All my prayers for my Kababayan in Borongan Eastern Samar. Esp. my Cousin's there. :/
