    Washi (Sendong) was formed Dec. 11, 2011. It’s original track was NorthWest but later it changed direction entering Mindanao by way of Hinatuan and exiting in Dipolog. That night at 8:22 I checked satellite picture and Sendong was in Impasug-ong. Then brownout hits. Later, Sendong passed the Northern flank of Mt. Kitanglad among other watershed that drains to CDO River. That’s why lots of water came here & Mandulog River.
