‘Bayanihan’ impresses UN official

He has seen the many faces of death and destruction—in the genocide in Rwanda, in the wars in Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Liberia, and in the havoc caused by Hurricane “Katrina” in Louisiana.

But for a man who has seen it all, the aftermath of Supertyphoon “Yolanda” is “worse than even the worst.”

Statement of H.E. Benigno S. Aquino III, President of the Philippines on typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan)

Last Friday (08 November), Typhoon Yolanda ravaged a large part of the Visayas region. It was one of the strongest typhoons in this country’s history, if not the world’s. We thank the experts from PAGASA, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau, Phivolcs, and DOST, who gathered together and gave us the right, detailed, information, which allowed our countrymen to prepare for the coming storm.

This was also the reason for the reports of low casualty counts from the other provinces that were also in the typhoon’s path, such as Oriental and Occidental Mindoro, Negros Occidental, Palawan, Aklan, and Romblon, where their local governments were able to prepare in advance.
