    I may need your help again after this storm does it's damage. My girlfriends tito died just before the storm hit. I'm going to send her something for the funeral.

    I am in Moalboal Cebu now, no significant rain just some wind but nothing to worry about. (as of 18:00 1 Nov )

    Have been talking to friends in Manduluyong City and Makati. Their local cell towers are still functional and they are reporting heavy rains and some flooding, local news saying over 1 million people evacuated.

    On the slopes near "recent" eruptions (up to even a few years), the lack of vegetation in combination with loose ash and stratified soil makes for a very dangerous situation in prolonged heavy rain... The ground just lets go, as a typical landslide, but then acts much more like a liquid flash flood... They're extremely fast moving and devastating to anything in their path.... I won't post it here, but in the same set of pics, there was an obvious fatality :(

    Good to hear mate, thanks for that update. My asawa's family is in south-central Cebu Island, they reported clear skies, just a bit breezy. As I understand, more northward had some rain, is that correct?

    Cell towers around Las Piñas, Parañaque, and Muntinlupa are still up as well; maybe a few isolated outages, but nothing reported as of yet. Interestingly, the rainfall in Muntinlupa hasn't been as significant as expected. Makati and Manduluyong typically receive more than than my location though...They're also more prone to major flooding... Best wishes and prayers to all those affected nationwide.
