"Eyewitness footage of Typhoon Haiyan washing house away"


November 16, 2013

This video broke my heart and gave me goosebumps both at the same time.

No one could've survived this! Oh, dear....



From Plan International:

"Eyewitness footage of Typhoon Haiyan washing house away"

Footage taken at 6am on Friday 8 November as the storm hit Hernani in Eastern Samar. Plan staff member Nickson Gensis took this while sheltering on the 2nd floor of a house less than a few hundred metres from the sea.

"Six of us took refuge on the top floor of a boarding house. Five were praying and I was filming. The others called me to pray with them but I said that I needed to document this."

"Three of our group were male and we all wore trunks so that we could swim if we needed to. We were so scared. But I thought, 'if I die, so be it'."

"It was like a huge tsunami but the water receded quickly afterwards. We ventured downstairs and outside around noon. I took shots of the boarding house we had been in because I was so thankful thank it protected me. At 2pm I started work, travelling to assess the damage to villages supported by Plan. I realised as I was taking notes while talking to people that I was shaking."

Plan emergency teams are on the ground providing aid to children and families affected by Typhoon Haiyan. To support the relief effort, go to: http://planresponds.org/ #PlanResponds.

Who is that "gay" I see staring straight back at me...?

Why is my reflection someone I don't know?

Must I pretend that I'm someone else for all time?

When will my reflection show...who I am inside?
