My aunt is a doctor in Cagayan De Oro where Typhoon Sendong hit the hardest, along with Iligan. Thank God nothing bad happened to her and her family. She told mother that some of her patients were actually survivors from the typhoon. When she asked one man how he survived the typhoon, he answered:
“I held on to a floating dead body.”
The man had to do what he did to survive.
And now, the death toll is more than a thousand.
If you want to help the victims/ survivors, check out the post of my friend Cham, which shows a lot of ways you can send your help.
