The eerie calm after the storm

BOHOLANOS wake up to familiar blue skies a day after “Yolanda.”

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.

Meanwhile, a few kilometers away, in Leyte and other provinces, a calamity unlike any these islands have known was unfolding.

 

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