Any trees down ?
It had to be more than 50 I think.. and there were gust now and then that made you think the roof was going to fly off.

The radio here told us that they had raised the level to Cat 3 for Bantayan Island during the storm.

But whatever it was.. not bad at all compared to last year's Cat 5

I have not been anywhere yet but between Sillion and Baigad, and there was only one tree I saw that fell over the road.

I haven't seen any more, but going to guess those that did fall it was root and all, because of all the rain to the soil.

Some of the people are still living in tents from last year, but they dropped them and weighted them down so they didn't blow away.

Quite a few over in Sillion, but only Frankie here in Baigad, but his house is almost ready, not sure why he has been so slow getting it done as he has had the material for a long time.

I'm just glad it's over and was not that bad as we expected..

How did things go in Cebu at Caimito street?
