It was raining so hard so I decided not to leave the house anymore. I overheard my neighbors panicking outside. To cut the story short, our area was already flooded; water was almost 5 ft deep outside and knee-deep inside our house. Good thing, refrigerator, electric fan and LPG tank were the only valuables in the ground level of our house and we managed to transfer them in a secure, dry place. My niece who works in Pasay City was stranded. There was no serious damage and all of my family members are safe.
Typhoon Ondoy left residents in the metropolis and other provinces in desolation – claiming lives of hundreds of people, thousands homeless, and damaged properties amounting to million pesos.
I’m still puzzled what really happened last Saturday. Reports say the dams have exceeded the spill levels. Several people say it’s because of climate change which I totally agree. The incident only gives a signal, a wake-up call to every individual to stop indiscriminate dumping of garbage and illegal logging. Let’s act now, Go Green. Stop climate change!
