State of Bislig / by John Javellana

Images from the town of Bislig, Leyte November 26 2013.

The damages and casualties in Bislig is not as bad as the towns of Palo and Tanauan that come before it from the direction of Tacloban, but they also have been devastated. Aid has been reaching them although not on a regular basis. Mobile phone signal has been restored (3G from both Smart and Globe worked amazingly well) and might be a good place for people to file or send data. The people are good in spirits and the primary concern now is building materials for homes as well as temporary shelters for the victims that have made homeless.
