Manilyn Reynes recalled her first-hand experience with super typhoon Odette that hit her hometown Cebu last week. She also talked about the damages suffered by the city.

The actress showed heavy rains pouring outside the Waterfront Hotel in Cebu, as well as strong winds that toppled down power lines and trees, in a video on her Instagram page yesterday, Dec. 22. Reynes sought shelter at the hotel when the super typhoon struck the Queen City of the South.


Reynes also gave fans a look at the aftermath of the storm, which left the walls of the hotel knocked down, tables and chairs displaced, and parts of the structure’s ceiling destroyed.

“We were in my hometown, Cebu, when Odette hit the country last Dec. 16. We witnessed how she destroyed houses, structures and threatened the lives of many,” she told fans.
