January 8: Tuesday..today we finally went to New Bataan where the calamity happened. On our way to the spot, we've seen debris from the typhoon. Trees being uprooted from the ground, banana plantation that has been destroyed, roads full of debris from the flash flood and the houses being wiped out because of the heavy wind and rain. Unbelievable to see how Mother Nature can destroy something a human being built for weeks and even months.
When we reached the place where the famous Bamboo Resort, it was totally washed out. It was now gone and is replaced by those gigantic stones which comes from the upper area. The River that was supposed to be on the other side is now flowing in the middle of the place.
The road was cut off and been replaced by more rocks. The other amazing thing happened was that the Catholic Church hasn't been washed away and only been destroyed some part of the building.
It is sad to hear from those kids who had experienced the tragedy and lucky enough to survive the said flash flood and the tornado.
Before we left...we spare some of the money that I have collected from the generous people elsewhere. For that small amount it can help them with goods or even things they needed at home.
