Importance of Communication System
becomes clear in “Super Typhoon Yolanda”

As we all know, the effect of Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) make its way to prove how significant is the communication system as it brings total damages to facilities and infrastructures specifically in Region 8 which leads to identify it as the strongest storm ever known to make landfall and the fourth strongest storm ever recorded in the world with average strength of 195 mph (314 kph) at landfall.

Right after the landfall of Super Typhoon Yolanda, its effect causes total communication black-out in Region 8. During the height of identifying the situation in the area, the Communication and Electronics Service makes it way to immediately respond in providing communication link in the area. On November 11, 2013, the CES technical team (SPO4 Ireneo and PO1 Alicer) proceeded to Tacloban Area to install Motorola (XTL) UHF base radio and Codan (HF) Base Radio at Tacloban ACP (Sportscomplex) and Tacloban Command Post (Asia Star Hotel).
