Tropical Storm WASHI / Sendong now heading toward Palawan

Tropical Storm WASHI / Sendong remaining Mindanao right after leaving hundreds of dead in the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan. It is approaching at this second the coastline of Palawan.
The major issue is not the wind but the significant amounts of water the storm is carrying. Get off from the rivers and the downhill settlements!

PAGASA maintains storm signals for Negros, Coron and Palawan.

Right here in Camiguin  we experienced a welcoming and sunny Saturday. No main damages had been documented and electrical energy is back again all over again.
