Carrying food and other personal belongings, some residents climbed rock formations in Marabut to reach the caves, which serve as tourist attractions of the town.

They chose to evacuate to the caves to protect themselves from possible storm surges caused by Ruby.

Majority of the barangays in the town of Marabut are in the danger zone.

It is also one of the areas devastated by Typhoon Yolanda in 2013. -- report from Sharon Evite, ABS-CBN News Tacloban
