"We've been receiving many msgs asking for updates from Catanduanes. They only have a satellite equipment that provides internet to the Prov'l Capitol. You may send msgs to your families via Gov. Boboy Cua's FB page (https://facebook.com/SulongCatandungan). They have a team in charge of this."
"Amid all the damage, you can feel the LGUs at work, with most roads cleared and establishments starting to open. Catanduanos have played a big part with their sense of community: bigger and sturdier houses taking in those in smaller ones, looking out for neighbors."
