Ormoc river is one of the widest floodway in the province.It was actually reconstructed and widen in order to avert another disaster like what happen about two decades ago when
flashfloods killed about a thousands of its residents.
Right now the river serves as the division between the main city(the eastern side) and /the new emerging metropolis of Ormoc on its western side.
The city of Ormoc is one of the premiere city of the province of Leyte.It is constantly voted as one of the cleanest city of the Philippine islands. Ormoc is not a large city ,especially when compared to Tacloban City.However what Ormoc lacks in size, it makes it up for its character.
Its a bustling metropolis, yet it retains its rustic charms in some area.It is accessible by mostly by land and sea. Visiting Ormoc if you are going to Leyte should be one of the priorities.
