Flood waters ravaged entire communities in Cagayan de Oro and Iligan Friday evening as families slept unaware of the pending danger. The totals continue to climb as officials conduct rescue and recovery efforts. Currently, dead 652; missing 808.
“It’s difficult to be certain on those missing,” Gwendolyn Pang, secretary-general of the PNRC, told media. “The floods washed out whole houses and families inside. It’s possible entire families are dead and no one is reporting them missing.”
Please join us in praying for the ongoing rescue efforts and for the churches and ministries that are mobilizing to minister to the survivors.
Kim and I visited Cagayan de Oro during our stay with her dad last May. It is a beautiful coastal city, the second largest on the island of Mindanao.
