News Ticker: Water is worse than wind

Washi - Surviving in Cagayan de Oro

We are sorry. Around 09:00 PM (21h00) last night, we were cut off the Internet. First electricity went off and then everything. The wind got stronger but fortunately there had been no rain. It’s been a dark night. This morning the sun came back. Electricity cam back about 30 minutes ago. So, here we go on …

Over in Cagayan de Oro and in Iligan they got the full power of the storm. It had not been the wind, but the big masses of water that killed over 100 people and there are still some 250 missing. Imagine, only a tropical storm and so many people lost.
