ILIGAN CITY, Philippines – Besides Cagayan de Oro City, Iligan City too was badly devastated by Tropical Storm Sendong, described as probably the worst to hit the city in recent memory. By Dec. 23, 2011, more than a thousand have been reported killed, even as the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council says it has lost count of the missing. Damage caused by the storm that dumped torrential rains in just an hour is placed at close to a billion pesos. – Rappler
