Andi, Philmar, and their three kids are currently staying in Makati, as their flight got canceled due to the typhoon.

As of December 17, all communications are still down in Siargao, and the residents of Siargao who aren't on the island are already arranging for planes to land doctors and to provide relief goods.

Andi also reposted relief and fundraising drives where people can send donations in cash or in kind.

Philmar, for his part, also shared some updates as sent by his family in Siargao prior to when communication with them was lost.
