PHOTOS: What happened in Guiuan
Posted on

Last Tuesday my dad sent a King Air plane to Guiuan (pronounced “gii-wan”), Eastern Samar to check the conditions there.
The 12-seater plane had Nickel Asia’s JB Baylon on board, who brought medicines and supplies to the devastated town.
On the way back they boarded victims to safety in Cebu and Manila, including some injured and the former Mayor of Guiuian, Analiz Kuan.
Following are photos taken by JB Baylon.

Hi Chuvaness, thanks so much for posting, I think these might be the first images on the ground at Guiuan! My friend Paolo also flew there to get the status and here is his report: http://souladventure.tumblr.com/post/67030488852/haiyan-yolanda-guiuan-eastern-samar-november-13-to Here are their photos: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151998348456321.1073741854.164229641320&type=3 The last place I traveled to, in October, was Calicoan Island, Guiuan. It’s so beautiful!!! The beaches, the jungle, the cave pool, grabe. I am so heartbroken about this disaster.

The RVM sisters still have no contact and no information on the situation of their sisters in Guiuan, Eastern Samar and in Palo, Leyte. The RVM sisters in Guiuan run a school, St. Mary’s Academy of Guiuan, located next to the severely damaged Immaculate Concepcion Church. Miss Cecile, or anyone with contact in Guiuan, would you mind requesting them to check out the school and the sisters there? Any information is most appreciated. Thank you very much.
