At least 332 people were killed, while many others (281) remain missing after floods and landslides brought by Tropical Storm Sendong (international codename: Washi) battered Southern Philippines Friday night (December 16, 2011).

Many of those killed were women and children who drowned when the river swelled in Cagayan de Oro City. Other victims came from nearby Iligan City, and the rest from other Southern provinces including Zamboanga del Norte and Compostela Valley.

In Cagayan de Oro City, more than 200 people were confirmed dead; while in Iligan City 40 unidentified bodies were recovered.

There were 23 barangays flooded in Cagayan de Oro, the center of the storm, after 180 millimeters of rain fell on the city.

The Visayas region was not spared, with 24 reported killed in Negros Oriental and Dumaguete City.
