Aerial video shows aftermath of ‘Sendong’



MANILA, Philippines – This amateur video was taken hours after tropical storm Sendong (international codename Washi) battered Cagayan de Oro City in the early morning of Dec. 17, 2011.

Emmanuel D. Abellanosa, the regional head of National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP), took this video for their office purposes.

The city was plagued by blackouts after the storm unleashed flash floods that killed at least 600, according to the Philippine Red Cross.
