Good Morning to all po! Hindi po talaga ako bicolano or tubong Bicol, though i have a friend who i lost contact with almost seven years ago, all i remember was his name and portion of his address, if anyone of youhappen to know anything about Our Lady’s Village in Legaspi, please let me know. I don’t know if it’s near or if within the affected areas (of recent mishap), any news or enlightenment would be of great help. I was worried because i dreamt of him few previous nights. I hope and pray that he’s fine. As well as those who were badly affected.

Cries for help haunt Legazpi storm survivors
InquirerLast updated 11:52pm (Mla time) 10/04/2006
LEGAZPI CITY — There are voices haunting Alicia Dalde, 44, of the village of Baybay this city and these were not from her imagination or dreams. They were those of her neighbors who cried out for help as huge waves slammed their coastal community at the height of Typhoon “Milenyo.”
“I heard my neighbors, those who were trapped inside their homes, scream for help,” said Dalde, whose neighborhood of at least 285 families sat near this city’s port and faced the Albay Gulf.
“That was… when the wind was already blowing violently and the level of seawater flooding our house reached up to my neck,” Dalde said as she washed donated clothes beside the rubble of what was once their neighborhood.
The scene after the storm devastated her.
“All our clothes and belongings were gone. None was left. The house that my husband and I worked hard for to build in years vanished in just one night,” she said.
It was a house built on savings that Dalde said she put together “at the expense of my health.”
“Now, I am sick, my intestines need to be operated on… but I do not have money for that. Worse is, we are now homeless,” Dalde added.
Reality, the painful one, was difficult to accept for Dalde. She thought the house could withstand the impact of the storm so when the waves started rising, the family simply left, thinking only of saving their lives.
Her husband, Henry, 39, was left behind to safeguard their belongings, but it would be a futile effort.
He watched helplessly as the waves washed other houses in the village into the sea and went on saving other neighbors when he had the chance to.
“I was trying to push our wall against the waves,” Henry said.
He heard a cry for help from neighbors and saw an entire family submerged in water. He was able to save them.
“I saw my friend being carried by the waves as he held on to the floating table that smashed him. I was able to save his life,” Henry recalled.
Hipolito Toledo, village chief of Baybay, said Milenyo had brought the worst damage to infrastructure in the village of Baybay in the last 20 years.
He listed the damage — a basketball court, a day care center, a stage, lamp posts, and street lights that he said were worth some P1 million all in all.
At least 38 families either lost homes or suffered severe damage to their houses. They are now in an evacuation center at a school in the port.
Toledo said what they need urgently are food, medicines and clothes, stuff that Milenyo washed away as it struck.
Village officials were set to meet with Mayor Noel Rosal to discuss the possibility of relocating the neighborhood to a safer place.
They had heard of plans to relocate them, especially people living about 50 meters from the shore. The Daldes were among those strongly supporting the plan.

Grabe man nanggad an danyos duman sa bagyo lalo na sa Sorsogon. Su biyahe kong naka-schedule kan Wednesday hale sa Sorsogon na-postpone baga dahil kan bagyong Milenyo.
Nagduman ako sa tugang ko na yaon sa Bibingcahan, burubitbit su mga maleta ta mala an paghona ko makalarga na ako pa-Manila kinabanggihan. Kan aga pa sana, grabe na su uran kan paghale ko sa Daraga. Ito palan nagpupuon na su bagyo. Sa kagurangan kong ini, su bagyong Milenyo an pinakamakusog na na-experiencia ko. Pagmate’ ko gare may giyera ta su mga atop nagraralalayapan na. Su ba’gong tugdok na harong duman harani sa tugang ni hermana ilinayog baga su bilog naatop. Su kabanga yaon buminagsak sa natad ni hermana. Ay herak ki Mahal na Diyos, maray sanang dae tuminama sa bintana ta kun dae baha-on na duman sa laog kan harong. Bata’ ngane grabe na su mga nagtataragdo sa kisame.
Kan pagkaaga, makamurumundo paghilingon su palibot. Puro turunglay su puon kan batag, barari su mga sanga kan mga kahoy. Su iba nakaturumba su bilog na puon. Kadakol na harong an nawaran ki atop!
