“EVACUATE! EVACUATE!” … repeatedly uttered when Typhoon Bopha neared. “EVACUATE…NOW!” … not good news — but seemed to be the only chance of survival.
Typhoon Bopha came with a roaring sound of the wind attacking the walls and scraping the roof. Many cried in fear. Outside was a strong wind and heavy rains. Trees and electric posts fell and knocked down concrete structures nearby. Power was cut-off and radio lines were silenced by the ravaging storm. In regions with open pit mining, particularly in Compostella Valley (one of the hardest hit areas), mudslides washed out houses and lives.
