When calamity strikes, it is a big trial for us to pass through. The effect of calamity was very terrible; all human resources that we depend on will be destroyed. It can destroyed farms, and houses like those in Anda, Pangasinan last 2009. As I said, a typhoon destroyed all the infrastructure people in that city depended on. After a strike, it leaves many people to suffer, and it results to lack of shelter and clothing. Also, it causes hunger to victims. In that situation, the government had declared that the city be placed under the state of calamity, that they needed more attention and help to survive the challenges of the nature.

In our country, we had already encountered many kinds of calamities. Like what happened last June 21, 2008 when super typhoon strokes our country causing floods to most of the part of our nation. This typhoon was called “Typhoon Frank”. Most of us can never forget how it affected the whole nation. Typhoon Frank was one of the biggest calamities that we had encountered. Also, it is the greatest calamity that affected the whole city of Iloilo. One-third of 1, 691, 000, citizens of city of Iloilo, were left homeless because their houses were destroyed. All damage infrastructure that the typhoon left had cost nearly P 1,500,000,000. That time, the city of Iloilo was deeply in help and needed more support in giving the primary needs for all the victims. With all the damage that typhoon Frank left, we needed long time to stand up and start living normally again.
Also this year, last February 21, a volcanic eruption shocked Sorsogon as Mount Bulusan erupted. Mt. Bulusan puffed cloud of ashes that headed towards south and has reached Irosin ,City having 46,000 inhabitants affecting the health of all the citizens near in the explosion . An evacuation was ordered and over 100 families affected of the ash falls left. But thanks to God, the ash fall stopped in just two week and people had their lives back.
