This video really blows.
Awesome power, great job Norm!
The early news I've read from Boracay seems encouraging. In contrast to other areas, it appears as if the island has been lucky.
Still waiting for updates from friends there.
Thanks for the video! My family is in there too and there are no news about boracay in the local tv news shows. big big thanks!
btw, you can publish your video on http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/youscoop so that many people would also see.. :)
the east side got away with it it was the west that was hit badly, my daugther is on the east side [thank god] but they were sheltered by it, im guessing this was taken on the east side of the island
sorry my misstake to the above it was the east tht was badly hit the west are fine and my daugther is on the west
Thank you. My family is on the island and news in the US has been sketchy as to details on Boracay. Figuring that to be a good sign, today's information and your pics are helpful. God Bless and speedy recovery to the island and the people. A shout ot to the Nation family should anyone know them. ♥ peace and love to you all.
I have family staying in Boracay, we have had so little news about this area in the UK. Thank you and thoughts go out to everyone in the area x
İ will visit boracay by 24/11 - i am not sure if i can come or not. Please write me how is the latest situation
I live in kelowna and will be arriving in Boracay Nov/13. Early morning and seems like Boracay is getting it together and that the Airport in Caticlan is up and running again as well, Looks like I will be helping my girlfriend doing some major clean up, luckly her home is on the west side close to buiobog beach, probley wrong spelling for the beach name. Should be an intersting trip .
Norm, thank you soooo much for posting. I have family stuck with you on Boraclay. Very nerve wracking on our end trying to make sure they are OK. Quick question, is ferry running to the airport? We confirmed flights are flying but wondering if you can get off the island. Thank you again and I am glad you are safe,
Norm - thank you for your updates on Boracay - My brother and his family live there, and we were unable to locate any other definitive updates on the island. Your site enabled me to pass on encouraging information to my mother, who can be a task; and worries if I don't call her back within 30min, so you can imagine her state when getting no info about Boracay! Her favorite kid lives there - (my brother - longer story, lol), but I digress - just THANK you! You have a new follower :)
So pleased to know that island is relatively OK as family are there at present but, for obvious reasons, cannot get in touch to check them out. I will sleep better tonight for your posting, thank you!
Yes my gilrfriend is living in Boracay and I did talk to her by stalite phone yesterday and seems like Boracay survive and to my understanding as of today no causalties have been reported. I will be there in two days.
Hello fantastic Norm!
We have been searching all day and all night to reach some information about our familiymembers backpacking in Boracay Island.
They were living close to White Sand Beach and after the thyfoon we haven't heard anything from them.
I'm begging you with all of my love, with all my life, to please just post anything you can hear associating to:
- A BLOND SWEDISH GIRL. Very blond!!!
- Frida Valtonsson. 20 years old. 1.75 tall.
- Backpacking with her boyfriend ADRIAN CEIMERTZ
- Often wear a WHITE BACKPACK
- Blue eyes, look very Scandivaian
- Was living on a hotel by White Sand Beach
- Last Friday they should seek for a safe place to stay before the typhoon
- Hopefully remain around White sand beach
- Should during their stay in Bocaray relax at the beach as often as possible, maybe they be there
- Always stick together, a blond girl and a medium-blond boy, 20 years
If you just see a BLOND GIRL, take it for granted that it's her and ask if she's from Sweden!
Thank you from all my heart, our whole family follows you constantly, so any information is helpful.
Thanks from Sweden,
