Recently, Cagayan De Oro, Misamis Oriental, Philippines was hit by Typhoon Sendong that destroyed a lot of properties and killed many lives.
Cagayan De Oro is known for its beautiful scenery and places to see. But now, they’ve lost the beauty of the place, the tourists spots were damaged.
Hindi lang ang mga magagandang lugar na nasira ang ikinalulungkot nila, pati na rin ang mga buhay na nawala dahil sa mga pangyayari. Typhoon Sendong attacked late in the evening so the people are not that aware and not well prepared. And it’s very hard to fight the water (flood) without seeing where it was going.
This is all because of the nature destroyers! Yes! They are the loggers– may it be legal or illegal. If they don’t have to abolish the trees in the forest, this won’t happen. Though it may happen but not serious as this much.
I hate to say this, but they are not the only one who has fault. Even the people that live there. According to some Government Officials, they were advised by them earlier,before the incident happened, that they have to move out of the place to avoid serious damages. But being so sentimental and giving much importance to their properties, they can’t leave the place.
What we should do by now to avoid this kind of incident, we need to take care of our Mother Nature. Give importance, not only to money and other things but also to the environment. There will be a lot of typhoons and other calamities coming so we better be prepared.
Remember, it’s better to prevent than to cure.
