Nahinumdum ka pa sini?

At half past lunchtime a year ago today, Calbayog got "chaotic" after it was "hit" by a Tsunami scare. I still have no idea how or where it started, but certainly those good-for-nothing individuals who were behind the scare succeeded in sowing panic among a good number of Calbayognons all over. But on the other hand, considering the resiliency that characterize many of us, we all had a good laugh about the whole thing after the panic has settled down.

Here are some pictures (I don't remember who gave me these) which i would like to share with you as we recall those unforgettable moments.

The Calbayog LGU Team was the first group from outside Tacloban to deliver water and relief goods for some residents of the city devastated a day earlier by Typhoon Yolanda.
