Finally crossed Abatan River to Maribojoc & Loon situation (and finish my heritage church-focused monitoring).
With Sir Jun from DYRD-AM this time. Please note that these are quick drive-by photos lang, no way near representative of the full extent of damages. But from these photos, we can see that Maribojoc and Loon took a real hard beating. Loon’s death toll, in particular, is very heartbreaking.
People need food and water. Those who plan to pack and distribute relief bags, please include water. Some will need clothing soon. Evacuation areas tend to attract illnesses, so medicines.
There needs to be an immediate plan to address an alternative route for goods and people transport in and out of these towns. Bridges can’t be repaired in a month’s time.
Update from this Morning form Supreme Weddings:
The WE LOVE BOHOL HELPLINE has been setup. Please pass these numbers for those who need help. Internet will come right after. They are still accessing it. For now, pass these numbers.
