Another disaster has hit the Philippines and they need our help! Tropical storm Sendong is shaping up to be one of the deadliest cyclones to hit the Philippines in the last 12 years, with the death toll expected to surpass that of typhoon Ondoy two years ago.
Cagayan de Oro and Iligan cities in Mindanao were worst hit when Sendong slammed ashore while people slept late on Friday and early Saturday, sending torrents of water and mud through villages and stripping mountainsides bare.
Floods washed away entire houses with families inside in dozens of coastal villages in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan.
