Field Report: Post Disaster Assessment in the Philippines, Final Day – On the last day in the disaster area, the engineers drove around and looked at the damaged structures in Guiuan including the police station, municipal hall, regional office of Department of Public Works and Highways, public market places and bus stations. All of the inspected structures sustained severe wind damage. At the airport traveling home, we managed to buy a few souvenir can openers that said “Tindog Tacloban,” which translates as “Rise up Tacloban.” We certainly echo the message and hope the people who survived the disaster can overcome and prosper. – See more at the ASCE website.
