Bayug Island After Sendong

, , 2 Comments

Bayug or Bayug Island is the second most devastated in number of deaths after Hinaplanon, after the Sendong flood last December 17-18, 2011.

This island used to have a lot of houses, greens and vegetation before the disaster. Now, it looks like a ghost town, and literally as well, some people could hear voices asking for help.

The first 6 photos were shot from the main Bayug. I will add shots taken inside the Bayug Island.

The flood came out towards to where I stood, destroying lives and structures approximately within its 5 kilometer wide path.

I wonder who climbed this tree, was his life spared? The flood reached as high as about half the height of this tree.

This is the first shot within Bayug Island. I caught volunteers handing out free drinking water to Bayug Island residents. I asked a woman standing beside me who gave these, she answered “Fredrick Siao”.

Walking further along. Some of the houses I see are temporary shelters built on the area of their collapsed homes.

The scene is like walking in a desert because of a huge sand and mud hill.

The house was obviously protected by the huge tree from equally huge logs.

Orchids Homes houses on the other island. Bayug Island is technically not an island. Probably, residents called it because it’s location, just adjacent to Iligan Bay.

I commend the engineer or architect of this house. But the tree on the other house perhaps also helped in making this structure still stand.

I’m sure this hole was created during the flood by those who lived in this house , to look for safer heights.

The remains of a stage inside the school.

This roofed structure is located beside the river, but the four trees also helped protecting this structure. I’m not sure if this is part of the school.

This floor is located beside the stage that only a part of its column remained. So this is probably a part of the school.

My body hairs were all up when there were two dogs howling between 5:30 to 5:40pm. Look at the dog lying on the floor, in the right side of the photo.
