Typhoon Sendong

Saaad. My heart cries out to those who have lost their loved ones brought by the typhoon Sendong (Washi) that devastated Mindanao last week. To date, the flash floods have killed more than 1,000 people and left more than 40,000 homeless. Soo heartbreaking.

The President already ordered to investigate if illegal logging aggravated the damages.  Obviously, yes. The affected areas has been cleared by illegal logging so the soil wasn’t able to contain the immense rain, the flooding went down the mountains swiping the homes and villages nearby. Let’s do our part in saving our planet – plant more trees, reduce/reuse/recycle whatever you can, promote a “paperless office” (instead of printing piles of documents, let’s utilize the technology and use document imaging software), use renewable energy, conserve water etc. We can help in various ways!

I hope no more tragedies like this will happen again. Let’s work together and try to live in a way that doesn’t hurt our environment.

  1. 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.
