Flash Flood Memorial

A beautiful monument can be found at the Ormoc City public cemetery which is set atop the mass grave of the victims of the Ormoc flashflood in November 5,1991. More than 20 years have passed since the tragic event that took nearly 8,000 lives. It is also known that there is but an estimated 4,900 victims buried at the mass grave at the Ormoc City public cemetery.

The marker depicts the life taken to heaven whose face is abstract, since “a dead person turns (to) soul, (with) no physical identity,” said sculptor Francis Cinco of Calbayog, Samar. Source
