The photos, which appeared on Bayan Mo Ipatrol Mo of ABS-CBN, were taken by Fr. Chris Amores, the current resident of the ancestral house.

The pictures showed the house standing almost unscathed amid heavily damaged structures, as well as fallen trees and poles.

What perhaps made the photo remarkable is that the heavily damaged houses appeared to be less than 20 years old.

The two-story octogenarian house, on the other hand, aside from standing tall amid the devastation appeared to have sustained only very minimal damage.

Various photos showing different angles of the house, including a ‘blueprint’ with the date “1939” are posted in local news Sugbo.ph.

Ben Cabrido, the grandson of the original owner, said he lived in the same house during the 70s.

He claimed that the house is made of quality materials and it was meticulously constructed, which is perhaps why the reason why it remained sturdy up to now.

The province of Cebu, as reported by Rappler, is among the areas heavily devastated by super typhoon Odette.

Super typhoon Odette made landfall in Cebu on December 16 of 2021. It rapidly developed into a Category 5 typhoon, which left widespread damage in Bohol, Cebu, Siargao, Negros Occidental and Oriental, as well as the island of Panay, Palawan, and some parts of Eastern Visayas and Northern Mindanao. Early on, it was classified as low-end Category 1 typhoon, though it unexpectedly intensified as it approached the Philippines, becoming Category 5 upon making its first landfall in Siargao.

Even homes of celebrities were not spared by the fury of Typhoon Odette. The house in Siargao of Andi Eigenmann and her partner, Philmar Alipayo, sustained heavy damage caused by Odette. Philmar uploaded on Instagram a photo of the damages sustained by their house in Siargao due to the strong typhoon. The rooftop of Philmar and Andi’s house was damaged during the storm. Netizens expressed their hope that Philmar and Andi will be able to rebuild their house.

Actress and model Nadine Lustre, who stayed for some time in Siargao, could not help but express her sadness over the devastating aftermath of Super Typhoon 'Odette.' In her Instagram stories, the actress reposted several photos showing the conditions of Siargao. According to Nadine, she is absolutely heartbroken as you could not even recognize some of the places anymore. The actress has also been actively posting information on how others could extend their help to the people.
