This photo was taken in Southern Leyte, which was the aftermath of the ravaging winds of Super Typhoon Odette. While my girlfriend's highschool batchmates were having a "drive by" donation for the people affected by the typhoon in the southern region of Leyte, I was able to document the damages on film.
Most of the houses were severely damaged as we go along the road, but the situation of this house was really heart breaking. It was supposed to be a retirement house for our kababayan who went abroad and wanted to settle back here in the PH. One of the owners of the house caught a non-serious road accident days before the typhoon so he/she was in the hospital when their beloved home fell off the cliff due to the strong waves that hit the very foundation of the structure. Luckily no one got hurt during this incident.
