Non-Stop Rains and Flooding in Metro Manila

August 7, 2012

Woke up with the sound of people scurrying and water being swept out. I looked out the window and noticed that flood waters have reached inside the apartment compound and is shin level already. Some neighboring apartments are quickly sweeping out water that have flowed inside their homes. We're lucky our place is about 2 steps higher so the flooding isn't felt. We turned on the news and saw a lot of other places in worse condition. There is no storm signal warning but the heavy rains caused Dams around Luzon to reach their spilling levels and soaked up the lands beyond their capacity. This kind of flooding happened before and we pray that everyone will kept safe despsite the danger.

Classes and work had been stopped in NCR and other neighboring provinces and Metro Manila Development Authority have issued a list of flooded areas around the Metro.
