If you could remember Cebu already had the worst Typhoon that hit the Cebu province “Typhoon Mike” or local name as Typhoon Ruping in the year 1990 but that house still standing.

Based on the post the house was built in the 1930s by the late spouses Samuel Amores (brother of my maternal grandfather Narciso Amores) and Leonila Tenebro (niece of my maternal grandmother Leona Tenebro) has withstood against all the severest storms that hit Southern Cebu, including super typhoon Odette.
