Frank's Rage

June 21, was a day to remember..A day to reminisce the devastation and destruction of either lives and crops of this land.

Typhoon Frank devastated the Province of Iloilo, and its cities. Me and my family for ones along with other thousands of individuals experience the ravishing force of the nature. The force of the nature against the man-made barriers and structures.

Indeed we are no match against the fury of nature.

The house of my "lolo" in the village of Sambag, Jaro was one of the totally devastated sites of the typhoon. my aunts small "sari-sari" store was also a victim of this cause.
The speed of the flood was triple as compared with the last flood that we had experience in 2002.

Our neighbors now clamors and claiming that their lives are being ruined by this unfortunate event. Other do claim that 80% of their livestocks perished. Cock breeders are also victimized by Frank's rage.

Other sites that had tasted this kiss of the nature's fury are, Pavia, Janiuay, San Miguel, Oton, and other parts of the Western Visayas Region or the Panay Region.

All we can ask for is that the government will now take a remarkable step in making the lives of the people easier in recovering from this painful tragedy.

I hope so....
