Biliran Island was slammed by Typhoon Haiyan, leaving at least five dead on the island.
There is one dead in Cabucgayan and four dead in Naval, reported the island’s government.
The dead have been identified as Benito Espejo, Romeo Kho, Feliciano Abenales and Conrado Sulad.
Further, the typhoon devastated many properties, including around 300 houses.
Because of downed electrical wires and posts, power went out for the entire province, and communication signals went out as well.
Biliran-Naval can be rehabilitated in 15 days, but the power supply depends upon the power provider, NGCP, said GM Marlon Roa.
