Still reeling from the massive earthquake that leveled their historic churches, such as the picturesque Dauis Church, Boholanos braced themselves for the wrath of Supertyphoon “Yolanda”—a wrath which, thankfully for them, never quite came.

Mother Nature, pushed to her limits, was going to have her day.
