I have been in contact with friends who live Babatngon. Apparently the village escaped the worst, I was told that despite injuries, property damage and destruction there were no deaths in the village, I hope that this is correct. As of six hours ago I was told that no relief had reached Babatngon. I sent money to them via Western Union, but after a boat trip to Catbalogan in Samar, and two days of waiting, they have been given a “Priority Number” by the Western Union office and told to return on Monday, that is in four days time! They were told that in Calbayog the daily limit had already been reached.
