125th Fiesta Celebration of Tacloban City

VN photo fishermen devotees

My friend and former officemate Ver Noveno (now working for Cong. Romualdez) took this photo during the 125th fiesta celebration of Tacloban City last June 30.

Fishermen devotees of miraculous image of Sr.Sto Nino (EL Capitan) pass along San Juanico Strait during the Fluvial Parade. Rose petals were thrown from the helicopter at the foreground.  The cargo vessels that were swept inland during the onslaught of typhoon Yolanda are still there.

Fishermen raises their image of Sto Nino. More than 300 fishermen on board their motor boats join the fluvial parade.

Thousand of fishermen died during super typhoon Yolanda.

Palo Metropolitan Cathedral after Typhoon Yolanda

This is what’s left of the cathedral edifice a few hours after super typhoon Yolanda hit the island of Leyte. Only the concrete walls remain standing. Experts alone can declare if the edifice is fit for reconstruction or a new church should be built  on the same site.

See the picture of the church five months ago. Both pictures were taken by my former officemate Ver Noveno.
