"MILENYO  DISASTER"

Typhoon Milenyo - 132 - 160kph  

September 27-28, 2006  -   1:30am - 7:00 am

THESE PICTURES SPEAK OF WHAT HAPPENED IN THE POBLACION AND NEARBY AREAS DURING TYPHOON MILENYO

 

We didn't take pictures of what was left along the Ragay Gulf because nothing will come out of the pictures

since almost 90% of the houses built along the seashores in Brgy. Poblacion, Manggagawa, Calimpak and Manlayo were washed out  

by big waves caused by very strong winds, heavy downpour and the high tide.

 

By estimate, electricity will resume after a month (that's probably within the last week of October) due to numerous electrical posts and 

transformers that were destroyed by the Typhoon.  Back in the old days, generators became serviceable again to both

households and offices.  It's good that the telephone landline resumed operation the

following day after the typhoon while long distance and internet services were irregularly provided after 4 days.

SMART powered celphones get connected also after 4 days while the GLOBE subscribers had their

signals 6 days after the typhoon.  Of course, the cable TV operation is also suspended to the dismay of the

KAPAMILYA viewers since BITUING WALANG NINGNING is on its final week of showing (hehehe) and are also asking

who was eliminated in the recent expulsion night in Pinoy Dream Academy

or if the most coveted 2 Million Pesos has been won in Kris's Deal or No Deal.
