    Tacloban City: Three weeks after the storm

    Apologies once again but the internet connection in Tacloban city is not yet stable. I'm now covering the happenings here in Tacloban City, almost three weeks after the storm. Comparing it on the first week, the main streets are now 100% passable but the other small streets are still full up with the debris and buried dead people.

    There are few small sari sari stores who are now open but major supermarkets are still closed. Some are planning to open on December but some will be on next year.

    More and more volunteers can be seen in different communities within Tacloban City. Some are focusing in the medical mission and others are in relief operations.

    Some establishments are using generators to power up the electricity at night. Police and military visibility can be seen in the area.

    The ships who were carried in the coastline are still there but local residents are starting to rebuild their houses.
