Stories of Survivors

ABS-CBN News has done a great job documenting the stories of those who survived the Typhoon and you all should take a look: http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/specials/3disasters

Here an excerpt from the article:

Estoya, who lived near the sea, was aware of the dangers of a strong typhoon. Their house had been flooded before.

 

She packed her bags and prepared to leave.

 

However, her daughter, Victoria, refused to leave her small store behind. Bernardo, Rowena’s husband, also refused to leave the house.

Her two other sons also stayed behind.

 

She had no choice but to leave her two children and her husband. Accompanied by her grandson and daughter-in-law, Estoya went to a convention center in Palo.

 

“Had I known that that was the last time that I will see them, I should have forced them to come with me,” she said.

 

Estoya said that they were cowering in fear inside the evacuation center when the typhoon destroyed it.
