Excuse me sir, please allow me to be excused next week since I want to visit my family in the province. They are affected by the eruption.
Okay, I'll allow you since it's an acceptable reason.
Houses are said to be buried deep in Bacolor. And only the bell tower is visible because the whole structure is sunk deep in the lahar. Everything had been washed out.
A lot of them are evacuated at public schools and basketball courts. They are waiting for food and the assistance of the government.
Until now, there is still no electricity in many areas.
Oh no! What happened here. It looks like a ghost town. I wonder how's my family.
He specifically asked his manager that he'd be excused next week in order for him to visit his family in the province.
When he arrived at the bus station, he learned that they didn't have trips for the past week because the roads were covered with lahar. He then heard fellow Kapampangans talk.
The bus could not go any further to Angeles City since the Abacan Bridge collapsed and so they still need to cross the river in order to pass through and got to Angeles City. The moment he stepped down, his legs shook and what was once he called the "city of angels" was now like a ghost town.
