Let us learn from tropical storm Sendong!

I openly suggest to Pres. Aquino to authorize a study be made with recommendations to prevent future tragedies as what happened to Cagayan de Oro city.

The report, to be under the auspices of DOST and relevant public offices, shall be made public one month after the study authorization is announced. It should include the tracking of the storm, the state of preparedness of cities and specific suggestions on the prevention or amelioration of the damaging effects of a storm like Sendong.

An update, an FB friend EJ commented:

The tragedy of Sendong and all the other storms, minor or major ones that hit the country are beyond our control but the effects and impacts of these storms could have been prevented if only, we as a nation have stricter implementation of our environmental laws. Our laws on mining and quarrying most especially needs review and this is a challenge for the presidency of PNoy.
