An aerial photo of the “Duroungan” of Barangay San Mateo in Borongan City, taken two weeks after the devastation brought about by Tropical Storm Urduja that hit the province on December 16, 2017. The whole barangay was submerged with a 13-foot flash flood that carried destructive debris including cut trees (or troso) that in some cases pushed several houses away from their original location. Observers believe that prevalent illegal logging in the area is one of the causes of the flooding. (Alrean Beronio / Este News)
