TS Sendong (Washi)

Anatomy of a Disaster

Track map of Tropical Storm Washi. The points show the location of the storm at 6-hour intervals.

On December 12, 2011, a developing area of low pressure had persisted about 945 km south-southeast of Guam. Situated along the southern edge of a subtropical ridge, the system tracked steadily westward towards the Philippines. The following day, the system was classified as a tropical depression.  Maintaining a westward track, the depression was forecast to intensify slowly over the following three days. By December 14, convection redeveloped over the low and the system  has attained tropical storm status - Tropical Storm Washi (international designation).

Sendong hit Poblacion


Storm signal no. 2 was already raised yet the weather was just fine that day.  Iligan is not usually hit by strong typhoon and a mere tropical storm is not going to do much damage as so everyone thought.   Nobody suspected that it could get worse.

Barangay Kiwalan


Date Created: Jan. 20, 1967
Fiesta: August 16
Area: 914.2 ha.
Distance (from the city):9.5 km

Kiwalan is one of the earliest settlements and one of the oldest local government units of Iligan City. Its strategic location makes it suitable for human settlement and economic activities. For this reason, Kiwalan is ever since a vibrant and a dynamic community. This is also the reason why many industries came to establish their operation in the Barangay.
