Google has done a couple things to help out those affected by the storm. Maybe someone on here with more connections to the Philippines than myself can pass these along. Such a sad situation for such a great and positive people who already have enough to worry about in their everyday lives...

I was planning to go there in < 4 weeks... I might need to hold off for a bit.

Toby, I thought they said around 2-3 weeks for power to be returned from what I read and saw on the little news I could find.

I hope everyone is OK down there and best wishes to everyone in the Philippines.

Is there any way to even get from Kalibo to Boracay right now does anyone know?

I get updates directly from Boracay.
Will keep posting them when something changes.
