What Typhoon Sendong’s destruction of Cagayan de Oro City says again about us

While scanning the news the other day, a friend of mine made a rather glib remark. She said that Filipinos have lately been so fixated on their petty politics — the bickering among politicians and justices over the jurisdiction of their respective offices — that the only way to force people to step back from all that and get a bit of perspective will require no less than “another Ondoy”. And then Typhoon Sendong (international code name “Wasi”) strikes. In one night, flash floods caused by heavy rains snuffed out more than 400 lives in northern Mindanao in and around Cagayan de Oro City.

Just 24 hours ago, our concerns were about how the impact of the sort of political pettiness we’ve seen in recent weeks and the disruption to the normal operations of the affected government agencies would play out over the next several months — its impact on a neglected economy and the demoralising effects on Philippine society of the instability the conflict was causing. All of a sudden the issue had become acute and singular, and the answer to the question of whether or not politicians — Filipino politicians — really do make a difference in Philippine society where it counts becomes clear — crystal clear to people like the father of the dead little girl in that photo (not the one included in this article) being passed around all over the Net.

To make the perspective we gain out of the appalling tragedy of Typhoon Sendong more relevant, I defer to what my colleague Ben Kritz wrote earlier, where he points out how the current government of President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III responded to the disaster using a three-pronged approach: (1) order the relevant agencies to assist the victims, (2) order a review of disaster response procedures to identify where the lapses occurred, and (3) identify and highlight where local officials and residents were negligent in mounting a proper response to advanced warnings issued by the national government.

This is pretty much a textbook approach to how an all-too-typical Philippine government would manage public relations in the aftermath of a disaster in which it was seen to be ineffective. As Kritz points out, for a government that ran on a platform premised upon being no way like the previous administration of its nemesis, former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (and continues to campaign to that tune today), the point of how Presidents quite simply do not matter to the average Filipino was called out as loudly as ever. Back in 2009 Ondoy left Arroyo’s government looking like an ineffectual lump of bureaucracy and bad policies. Aquino’s looks no better (and probably fares worse) in the aftermath of Sendong today.

Next president, plez.

Perhaps because of how it was the national capital city that Typhoon Ondoy struck back in 2009, the loud soul-searching and Bayanihan grandstanding was a lot more perceptible then. But Sendong struck some city somewhere in the “southern Philippines”. So perhaps the vast distance from Imperial Manila implied by the fact that the disaster happened somewhere in the south gives President Noynoy Aquino the option to visit the calamity area sometime “shortly after Christmas”. Indeed, he reportedly may just do that.

Whatever the case, finger-pointing and blame-mongering have never been in short supply whenever disaster strikes. What is glaringly lacking are results and improved approaches to mitigating risk given the nature of the country’s geographical location and climate. And we see now how despite politicians selling to their voters the notion that they are different — even special — the reality is a lot starker: they are all essentially the same. And because we latch on to the same things over and over, we can expect the same things to happen again and again.

the cohorts of benigno the turd,starting with the stupid mayor of cdo started blaming gma for the alleged illegal logging and mining as the main cause of the flash floods.as if all these accusations started during her term.last february,panot declared a total log ban.hehehe,what happen next was there was an increase in illegal logging in mindanao.

JahCdeO
Guest

With all due respect, I think the statements above are a little off. Wherever did you hear that the CDO Mayor is a cohort of Benigno? Fact is, because Abnoy hates the guy, he alloted only 50M to CDO while giving 100M plus to Iligan, knowing fully well that CDO incurred a lot more losses and casualties to Sendong.

You did not mention that GMA administration had identified areas prone to flash floods and proposed flood control projects. Aquino cancelled them all.

If you recall, GMA’s administration caught merry hell for the way it handled Ondoy, as it should have. By the time Pepeng rolled in, however, just a week later, things were already being managed better. Still didn’t work out great, but there were obvious signs that someone was taking it seriously and making efforts to fix errors. This guy: “We need to review our manual on preparedness.” And, “Well, it’s their own damn fault for not evacuated.” Hey, Jackass: Why don’t you review how you vetoed pre-disaster preparedness and training from the 2011 budget?

There are tasks that are urgent and important (e.g. firefighting) and there are tasks that are important but not urgent (e.g. fire prevention). To be truly successful, we should strive resources for firefighting as low as possible (ideally, zero) and fire prevention should be maxed out. This is not a new concept — it has been around for ages. This is one of the key concepts that is described by Stephen Covey in his book “Seven habits of highly effective people”.

Todays PR lesson courtesy of m quezon Mlq3 tweet this morning reads: “Good morning. Checked and indeed there was a PSG party last night: it couldn’t be cancelled (unlike annual Cabinet Xmas Party scheduled for tonight, which was cancelled yesterday afternoon, so funds could go to relief). President dropped by for 30 minutes to be with those who saved his life.” Note – 30 minutes! Vconc performed for more than that! Mmmm Note – sympathy sale – “saved his life” – stop crying! Note – ‘ donate funds’. Money talks Pr lessons – when you are in a hole, dont… Read more »

There are a lot of Mining going on in Mindanao
It is to be expected that there will be a big flood…
the government doesn’t care if the people in Mindanao perish or even if the whole Mindanao is to go underwater
they just need the little money that the foreigners give
Visayas will be next it will start at Palawan

Putangina nyong nasa gobyerno na makasarili maranasan nyo sana ang hirap na nararanasan ng mga naghihirap sa mindanao

What I hate about this flood-disasters that perennially happen everywhere in the Philippines is the simplistic finger-pointing to illegal logging activities (and mining activities). Not that I support illegal logging (heck, I’m actually against it) and I’m a bit partial about mining, the real cause of flood can actually be explained if you’re familiar with the hydrologic process. As I have mentioned in another forum, the cause can be described by the following hydrologic process: 1.) Precipitation (rainfall intensity) exceeds the rate of absorption of natural ground and the vegetation cover (infriltration) and the environments’ capacity to evaporate (evapo-transpiration) its… Read more »

@ SalingKetket

“Why dont you do something about it?”

The things he discussed were about emergency preparedness for typhoons and floods. FYI: Our dear President pulled the plug on emergency preparedness funds. So, even if that smart guy is in the government, he won’t be able to anything. No money alloted for saving lives. The fund is for when there’s already dead people and destroyed property.

NOOOOO FUUUUUUNNNNNNDDDDSSSS!!!!

I repeated the letters so you wouldn’t have to have any misconceptions. Anyone cannot do any preparedness activity because there’s:

NOOOO BBUUUUUDDDDGGGEEETTT!!! Get that.

We already did what we can – we paid our taxes faithfully.

All governments are corrupt, my dear. That’s not exclusive to the Philippines.

But there’s a big difference with having a budget and having nothing to work with.

The President’s veto for the removal of the budget for emergency preparedness is all over the news, except the non-sense channels. What’s not to believe?

I don’t believe that there is no fund.

whatever that guy faux_ph says
I still blame the logging and the mining for the flood that happen in CDO and Iligan
the government is still to blame for killing those people.

Smart and in the government aren’t enough. Can’t do anything without the money to fund the implementation of plans and buy materials for it. Other than that… punch in the dark.

A politician should see this and legislate funding for this idea. Well, that’s one way. Somebody has to fund this to get things going.
