Sendong Aftermath Photos

, , 8 Comments

Typhoon Sendong ravaged Iligan City and most of Northern Mindanao in the early morning of December 17, 2011.

Initially, I had no idea it was a serious disaster until I went to our supposedly meeting place at Jacko’s Kan-anan in Gerona. We’ve had a planned visitation in Mainit to donate school bags to the kids.

I took the following photos about twelve hours after the typhoon slammed Iligan.

    We saw the destructions in your areas – parts of mindanao and visayas, we really felt so sad here in ncr and luzon to see you all there in your ground zero. as ordinary persons, all we can do is to include you and all what’s being done there in our prayers for fast recoveries and all helps to favorably reach your place.

    we just hope that every leader now in each LGUs in the country now can gather more inputs to be good, proactive and competent in dealing with their localities and take away so much politics. let’s take a very particular considerations on preventions and precautions. climate change implications are indeed here in our country. let us adapt to it by building and securing our lives and properties in safe areas. let’s help build a community that is safe and sustainable.

    as every citizen now should always listen and pay attention to weather reports for us to be able to plan ahead of time. during incoming calamities like typhoons, let’s do away first with some TV and radio programs and pay attention for a while on weather reports of PAGASA. through it perhaps some govt officials can do so much on information dissimination. every citizen should no longer be stubborn when it comes to approaching typhoons and other calamities. let’s plan ahead, know our locations, where to go in cases of evacuations, etc.

    with our condolences and the power of hope be with all there – our brothers.

    MAY ALL THE HELPS FROM OTHER PARTS OF the PHILS. AND OVERSEAS REACHES YOUR PLACE. THAT NO ONE SHOULD TAKE ADVANTAGE ANYMORE.

    GOD BLESS YOU ALL THERE AND HAVE HIGH SPIRITS TO RECOVER.

        Illigal logging should be taken seriuosly by our government officials…ITS VERY visible to the eye in the aftermath og “sendong”(logs and muds hit houses and people resulting to death and damages).We should plant trees to our mountains to recover what is lost and to prevent floods from happening again.We should support “ONE ILIGAN”…one for all and all for one to the victims!

    Dear Iliganon,

    We are a small team based in Singapore currently working on a documentary about survivors. We have interviewed a lady who has survived Typhoon Sendong.

    We are wondering if we are able to use some of your photos for our documentary. We will credit you under special thanks.

    Looking forward to hearing back from you. Thanks!

    Sincerely,
    Vanessa
