A number of citizen journalists embarked on a news-gathering assignment to the Filipino city of Tacloban (塔克羅班), an area seriously damaged by Typhoon Yolanda (海燕颱風). The first impression of the area was from the bird’s eye view of the aircraft, revealing a strange scene of utter destruction. There are no words to describe the scene at Tacloban airport, which has been left in complete ruins. Though it was a raging typhoon that inflicted this damage, it appeared more like the cruel work of a tsunami.

Over a month has already past since Typhoon Yolanda swept across the country, but desolation in the stricken area is still painfully evident. Mountains of uncollected garbage now engulf the streets, electricity has yet to be restored, and 90% of businesses lie in a state of temporary closure. A few positive developments, however, are that the streets are now alive with swarms of street vendors selling daily living necessities, and there is a strong presence of international organizations that are not only providing essential aid and engaging in reconstruction projects, but also striving to assist the Filipino people survive these bitter times. However, as with all such calamities, the healing process will require a great deal of time.

風災後一個月的塔克羅班

幾位公民記者進入海燕颱風重災區菲律賓塔克羅班市採訪,第一印象從空中鳥瞰就可以看得出災情非比尋常。塔克羅班機場已經成為廢墟,進入市區後一幕幕進入眼底的慘烈畫面,沒有形容詞可以描述了,它是颱風帶來的災情,但簡直是海嘯過後。海燕颱風所帶來的災情已經超過一個月,災區依舊滿目瘡痍,街上充滿著還來不及處理的垃圾,電力還沒恢復,9成以上的店家還處於歇業狀態。不過市街上倒是充滿著新的小販,賣著日常生活用品,災區有很多國際組織進駐協助民眾們努力重建,渡過難關,但這一切都需要時間。
