Diary of Louise Fillmore Blancaflor

October 2, 1944

Today is very stormy and it is raining very hard. The fox holes and shelters are filled with water. We have not heard the drone of planes, not even of Japanese planes, for visibility is very poor. Prices are still sky high. We are saving our canned goods for invasion time, for no one will be able to leave their house then.

The Japanese are having the people leave their homes so that the Japanese can occupy them.
