The news regarding flash flood in San Jose, Tarlac is both correct and wrong. As a rule of thumb for us, better to get information from the Baag outreach team. It will be best for us to wait for the official declaration from the survivors as well as from the search and rescue teams. I am not discrediting the fact that this is another unwanted part of the mountaineering history.
The lost of men and women in the caress of nature is something to reflect for us. As of now, let us continually pray for the comfort for the family members and friends of the casualties. Also pray for the immediate result of search and rescue for the missing member.
This is the moment for us not to initiate blame game but to educate our line to experience safe and enjoyable mountaineering.
Kudos to all the individuals and groups who untiringly participated to the search and rescue, truly by your action we can say that mountaineering community is more than friendship- it's a growing family.
GOD bless us all!
