Almost six months after Typhoon Haiyan struck a minority of Philippines, there is nothing that I can see with a quick Internet search on the 2014 progress in rebuilding Guinan, Samar that was one of the worst affected places.
We know that Malapascua Island's and to a slightly lesser extent Bantayan Island's rebuilding is progressing well.
We know that Tacloban's reconstruction is proving challenging given the large population and their previous desire to live by the sea.
But we hear nothing about Guinan. Does anyone have any updates? While I was fortunate enough to visit Leyte twice before the typhoon, sadly I have yet to visit Samar, but would very much like to. However I suspect Guinan is still pretty much a no go zone (although it's only part of what in Filipino terms is a reasonably sized island). Conformation one way or the other would be helpful.
