Taal unrest : We Lost The Only Horse, House We Had’

The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PhilVocs) warns that the alert level 4 is not stable, Taal volcano can still make all the things worst for us.

While we don’t want the Mt.Pinatubo experience that really made Central Luzon down on its barest knees.

So our countrymen from Batangas is now being tested for the resiliency and adversity that every Filipino is known for. But as early as now, some of them have nothing left to return to.

Among the evacuees was Boyet Gaduyon, a father of seven, inside the Sto. Tomas North Central School in Batangas from Talisay where Taal Volcano is located sifted through piles of clothes donated for their use.

“Kaisa-isang kabayo ho ng anak ko…talagang wala na,” Gaduyon told The Philippine STAR. He said the horse, apparently for tourists, was their only source of livelihood, particularly in buying rice to eat.

Aside from losing their horse, Gaduyon said their house was also buried by volcanic ash. “ ’Yung bahay namin ho lubog.”

Asked if they had something to return to in Talisay, he shook his head: “Ay, wala na ho.”

Gayudon said they don’t know how long they have to stay in the eveacuation area, since the Taal volcano seems to be unrest for a long time.

As per City Social Welfare Development, there were around 334 families or 1,092 individuals at the North Central School as of yesterday – all of them from Talisay.
