Signal number two is raised in Leyte, but the crowd braves the weather for the Holy Father

LEYTE, Philippines – Thousands of people wait for Pope Francis’ arrival in Tacloban despite the stormy weather.

Paterno Esmaquel reports.

The people behind me are residents of Leyte, many of them Yolanda survivors.

We all got drenched in the rain the rain waiting for the pope, but still the pope decided to come here despite the signal number two in Leyte, because after all this is the main objective of his trip in the Philippines.
