LULL BEFORE THE STORM?: A calm bay fit for a stroll in the afternoon.

The calm, salty sea of San Miguel bay kiss the breakwaters of Sabang, Sibobo and other shoreline villages of Calabanga in a clockwork manner. So much unlike as those that brought a devastating tsunami caused by an earthquake that hit the Japanese prefecture of Fukushima and surrounding areas last Friday. The disaster unfolding on television screen was enough to send quivers on this writer’s spine.

Disaster and emergency prepared will play a major role on the safety and lives of coastline inhabitants of the municipality where majority of families are marginalized and poor fisherfolks.
