Ketsana (aka Ondoy) has caused serious flooding all over Metro Manila and in provinces up north. In my area, the flood still has not subsided. When the flood level lowers down, it starts raining hard again. Only our ground floor was affected, but what I worry most is my Mom who’s still out. She was stranded in MoA SMX because of a dental convention. Now I heard she’s at a friend’s place. I hope the flood subsides real soon, so she can go home. 🙁
Both our Globe and PLDT landlines are kaput. Globe has failed since morning and now the cellular signal too. ~_~ Just when there’s an urgent need for communication.
I saw a cockroach on our garage wall prolly trying to save itself. ~_~ I wouldn’t want to walk in the flood near my place. When the roadwork started, sewer rats came out and some were killed because of the construction equipment. Ewww~ There were girls screaming earlier as the guys saw rats and even a snake in the flood. Geebuz~
As much as I would to help rescue people, I can’t. -_- The least I can do for now is to spread these EMERGENCY HOTLINES information. Many people are stranded and have lost homes.
