Ancestral House in Cebu Goes Viral After Remaining Unscathed After Typhoon Odette’s Devastation
The 80-year-old ancestral house in Cebu becomes the last house standing after Typhoon Odette devastated the province.
Last months, Typhoon Odette made a landfall in various provinces leaving widespread damages 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.
The typhoon left thousands of people with a little and even nothing to start with. Some of them were just relying on donations and relief goods.
Recently, the Facebook page “Bayan Mo, Ipatrol Mo” has shared photos of the last house standing in Sibonga, Cebu after Typhoon Odette’s devastation. The post goes viral and garnered various reactions from the netizens.
In the photos, it can be seen that the ancestral house remains unscather after Typhoon Odette lashed the country last December 2021. While, other houses around the vicinity have been heavily damaged.
Odette destroyed numerous houses, buildings, uprooted trees and trampled electrical posts in the area but the 80-year-old building remains intact amid the heavy rains and violent wind.
The photos have been originally uploaded by Fr. Chris Amores, the priest who was living at the ancestral home. The obsolete house has been built in 1939.
According to Ben Cabrido, the house owner’s grandson, the building is made up of high-quality and high-end materials. Cabrido said that the building did not suffer damages throughout the decades even amid a super typhoon.
