/ Philippine flood destruction like tsunami!!
A southern Philippine area devastated by flash floods that killed more than 1,000 people looks like it was hit by a tsunami, a U.N. official said Thursday as he appealed for $28 million in aid for the region. /
And that it's flood like the tsunami also confirms numerous amount of other articles.
SOZT "This was NOT due to sinking as the water came and went quickly, not lingering." EOZT
I have not found no one article which said that the water still standing! She is recede!
/ As quickly as the flooding came, the water started to recede. /
/ Cruz told GMA television. "It happened so fast, at a time when people were fast asleep."Source found here/
Also, the Philippine media have reported that the water came from the mountains and the sea! It's folding Philippines Plate!
/ Water from mountains. An official of the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said the rains brought by Sendong were not the main cause of the floods in Iligan and Cagayan de Oro. “It’s the topography. The water came from the mountains that’s why it happened so fast /
This is photo also shows that the water is gone quickly!
We had a message stating that there was a high tide but did not specify a height.
/ Floods were worsened by high tide! /
There has clearly been tsunami activity on the Sunda Plate of late, as noted by Nancy in her most recent newsletter.
Not just the 12 foot tsunami in Kuala Terengganu, but 8 foot high waves in Viet Nam and near 10 foot waves swamping a ship near Jakarta. We predicted the possibility of tsunami activity,
and roiling water on the Sunda Plate during the 7 of 10 sinking, especially when the pace is rapid. Is this what happened in the Philippines? Yes and no. There are many factors afoot. A tropical storm was passing through, and it was also at a time of high tide.
This was NOT due to sinking as the water came and went quickly, not lingering. Nor is this portion of Mindanao expected to sustain sinking during the 7 of 10. But the primary influence was a tsunami type influx caused by the CLASH of water pouring in from the folding Philippine Plate. As the plate folds, the water must go elsewhere and one direction it disburses is through the island cluster just north of Mindanao. This time, however, these waters met the storm surge of Tropical Storm Washi, a clash which by momentum was carried over the north shore of Mindanao.
Why is this tsunami activity occurring in the evenings or in the dead of night? There is a THIRD factor afoot in the daily wobble, which not only pushes the globe under her waters but also jerks the globe to and fro so that plate movement occur. The Figure 8
formed above the N Pole takes a strong swing to and fro when the Sun is over the North Atlantic. This action forces the lands on the Sunda Plate to the east, suddenly, so eastern coastlines have a rush of water to deal with. A complicated scenario, especially given high tides and a folding Philippine Plate in the vicinity.

‘A minute’s delay could have been tragic’
ILIGAN CITY—I wasn’t worried when an SUV went around the neighborhood frantically honking its horn, or when I saw barefoot people huddled in the corner store under pouring rain.
But a man clad only in his briefs in the downpour at around midnight on Friday prompted me to investigate.
Water was rising in the lower section of the neighborhood near the Bayug River, but I did not realize the gravity of the flooding until my brother rushed to the house, yelling, “Let’s go.” I distinctly remember hearing him sloshing through the water as he made his way to our garage.
We only had time to grab the essentials. My mother, my brother and his wife and their two kids aged 4 and 1, and the two maids only had time to jump into the car. I had to push the car so it could move forward as the water was already higher than the tail pipe.
I told them to keep moving and not to wait for me as the street was quickly turning into a river. A delay of one minute could have been tragic, but I thank the stars that they did not stop.
Unfortunately, the rampaging water caught up with me and other people fleeing on foot in the national highway.
I had to hold on to a minivan to keep me from getting tossed away.
By this time, debris were swirling in the water. A man was nearly hit by a refrigerator swept in the current. A cow and a procession of cars floated like toys in the rampaging flood. One vehicle smashed the foot of the overpass, causing people there to scream in panic.
The six-lane highway below had turned into an angry river. It felt like we were up a tree clinging on to dear life as a ferocious monster growled below.
As quickly as the flooding came, the water started to recede. By 5 a.m., people were heading back to their homes. The rising sun revealed the extent of the destruction during the night.
I marveled at the flood’s handiwork. Our house was in shambles. At nearby Orchids Subdivision close to Bayug River, rows and rows of houses were destroyed. People were laying out the dead on the pavement.
Someone told me that many of the dead took shelter in a two-story concrete house thinking they would be safe there. A 30-foot log hurtled “like a missile” and smashed the house, breaking the skulls and bones of people inside.
I hope that this doesn’t happen again. I only hope that we can be prepared better next time
