600 Feared Dead In Typhoon Sendong

typhoon sendong
 

This is one of the most heartbreaking scenarios in the aftermath of flashfloods and landslides in Mindanao due to Typhoon Sendong.

Almost 400 people had died and there are about 300 more who are missing when Typhoon Sendong pounded several regions in Mindanao, especially Cagayan de Oro City and Iligan City.

While everybody are sleeping, unexpected flashfloods drowned and washed them away. Local government in Cagayan de Oro City claimed that they were not advised by weather bureau about the strength of the typhoon and the province was ill-prepared in its wrath.

Given that the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) failed to spread warning to stricken areas, it is always a must for everyone to remain vigilant especially when typhoons entered the country.

No one can predict calamities and nobody can stop it. The only defense we have is preparedness, at all times.

    Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
