Super typhoon locally named “Glenda” hit Quezon Province along with other provinces in Luzon last July 15 and caused storm surge and small sized tornadoes which left many areas in major damages.
There is no electricity yet in many towns of Quezon Province while some are still clearing up roads from fallen trees and landslides. The town of Lopez, Gumaca and Calauag and others especially the towns near the bay may still be under floods and we’re greatly affected. Coconut trees which was one of sources of major agriculture products we’re greatly suffered. It might take a very long time for some to cope up with the current condition.

Many houses we’re damaged even structures made of steel like covered courts of towns. Churches and even parsonages we’re damage specially their roofs. The government is in the works helping people with their loss and damages. And help from other places even from abroad is expected to come extending help and compassion for people who are greatly suffered.

The typhoon is more stronger than “Milenyo” a typhoon which hits Luzon a couple years ago. The government is now on study how to cope up with this kind of typhoon which will be now common to enter the country.
