Tropical Storm WASHI / Sendong now over Palawan

Tropical Storm WASHI / Sendong has just crossed Palawan early this morning. It passed really close to Puerto Princesa. The storm weakened marginally as it moved into the West Philippine Sea

PAGASA maintains storm alerts for Coron and Palawan.

The images of devastated Cagayan de Oro and Iligan go close to the world. Lots of readers question, why the individuals did not go away their huts and houses and go to safer destinations.
