Earthquake and Typhoon: Update for Tourists

Panglao, Sunday, 17 November 2013 16:35:52

Typhoon Yolanda

Bohol was just to the South of the path of Yolanda (internationally known as Haiyan) and suffered relatively little additional damage. However, power-supply is limited, as the power lines to the major source of electricity in Bohol are cut (the Tongonan geothermal power-plant in Leyte).

The resorts in Panglao are operating as usual, although using generators at times.


We received the following update on the situation in Panglao from Holger Horn, proprietor of Philippine Fun Divers.

See you in paradise and please help us to spread this news in order to pre-empt and to correct misinformation's.

Thanks and best regards, The management
