  13. Hi everyone. I am the “americano” husband of Tonet Romagos and live in Atipolo, Naval. I caught the boat over to Cebu on Tuesday. Biliran suffered relatively minor damage but I do not have reports from the outlying islands yet. There was no storm surge and damage is fallen trees, roofing ripped off and many houses made of light materials severely damaged. Casualties are light and only 5 deaths reported I believe.
    Cellphone signal is still off & no power. My wife is still in Biliran and I did speak to her by cellphone ;yesterday. She managed to find a signal in the north of the island in Culaba so if you know anyone up in that part of the island…contact them.

    God bless you and Biliranons worldwide.
