Mobilizing (Bohol Quake 2013 Day 4)

The City

As of October 17, 2013 Tagbilaran City traffic has gone up to about 30-40% of its usual density. People are less afraid to go out despite the magnitude 6.0 aftershock from around 7:50 that morning. The supermarket portions of BQ mall and Alturas has opened for commerce and supplies have been flying off the shelf almost as fast as the salesladies could stock them.

This was to be expected because the earthquake happened during the 15th, a payday. So the malls were ready for the large volume of buyers as it was scheduled to happen anyway. Banking and remittance systems are working so donations via wire transfer are very welcome.

Eateries and hotels (those that are fit to operate) are reopening so off island volunteers do have a place to stay.

Relief Efforts

A huge turnout of volunteers was reported by Bangon Bohol in their relief efforts over at the Tagbilaran City Cultural Center. Among the needed goods, drinking water is a priority according to relief volunteers.

Fresh water delivered by boat from Tagbilaran City is a life saving event
