Abandonned Quonset Huts Subic, Zambales Former US Navy base inside the Subic Bay Freeport Zone in Zambales. Quonset huts were used as barracks for US Marines and have survived various calamities, among them the cataclysmic eruption of the Mt. Pinatubo in 1991. Unfortunately, in 1992, the Philippine senate agreed not to extend the lease on the facility, which led to the closure of the American naval base. Since then, some of the quonset huts have been transformed into offices and restaurants. The unfortunate ones met the wrecking ball and were subsequently replaced by new buildings. Interestingly, few of these quonset huts remain today, some of which are abandoned and have not been inhabited since the Americans left the place many years ago. #subic
