Clearing the Road between Talakag and CDO after Sendong
It has been 3 months since Sendong struck Cagayan de Oro, Iligan and Bukidnon and left devastation along its path. Our very own Talakag got cut-off from CDO due to several landslides. I counted 8 landslides in total between this stretch of road. Lorries carrying agricultural products got stuck. Jeepneys and vans carrying passengers couldn't get through. People, who found it necessary to travel, had to walk in knee-deep mud for half a kilometer in some areas just to get over the other side. It took 10 days to make the roads barely passable again for vehicles.
