This is an older video I shot on November 8th, 2013, as Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) made its closest approach to Calbayog City, Samar. Although our area suffered little damage, our neighbors to the south were not so fortunate. Most damage in our area was limited to thatched roofs, loose tin panels, and banana plants. Because banana plants are fairly fragile, and can be damaged with minimal storm winds, we secured our plants with ropes. The storm also rocked the many coconut
trees in our area.
