Power Outage!

Its been a week since we lost our electricity after a magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck the province of Leyte last Thursday afternoon, July 6 2017. The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said the quake hit off Jaro, Leyte at 4:03 pm. Having no electric power for long now I fell that we were back on time when Leyte was badly hit by the Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) that struck in November 2013, bringing torrential rains and storm surges. Leaving thousands of casualties and injured.

I am still grateful although it will take time before we will have the electricity back because we are all safe and the quake did not bring havoc to our town unlike Super Typhoon Yolanda. People can avail free charging in our municipal town hall and in the plaza. Main street lights was also lighted using generators. What we are experiencing right now it too far of what we have experience after Yolanda.

My prayers to does badly hitted town and its people. And of course that everybody will be safe and away from danger all the time.
