Typhoon Ondoy Causes Philippine Flood

It was heart-breaking seeing more fellow Filipinos suffering from the damage caused by Typhoon Ondoy that brought deep flood here in the Philippines.

Flood in the Philippines

I just remembered how our place here, Iloilo, was so affected by last year’s super typhoon Frank. We experienced the same tragedy like what people in Manila are experiencing as of now.

Houses are covered with flood full of mud and garbage, residents are waiting on their roof for rescue, falling in a very long line just to avail the relief goods and some clothings…ah, it’s really something that you don’t want to look back.

Anyway, I just wish that the typhoon will leave the country later tonight or early morning tomorrow, just like what the weather forecast have declared earlier in the news.

I hope casualties are less in number and more assistance will be given to those who are really in need and not by those who are greedy in the position…

  • Hi,

    We’re reaching out to all the bloggers who talk about the Philippines in an urgent appeal for them to tell their readers about the disaster that transformed the country this weekend.

    The torrential rains that pounded the Philippines, has resulted in more than 1.8 million people being immediately affected.

    We, the UN World Food Programme, has identified at least 178 000 families in need of immediate food aid.

    Please would you consider telling the readers of your blog about their situation, and encourage them to go to https://www.wfp.org/donate/ondoy to donate? Also if you’re active on social networks, it would help to tell other about it there too.

    Even the smallest amounts help: $18 can feed a family for 2 weeks!

    Warmest regards

  • I just hope that helping in times of need will not be mixed with political agenda…

  • Rest assure that NDCC Chairman GILBERT “GIBO” TEODORO is doing his best to help the Filipino people…..as a matter of fact GIBO IS OUT THERE GETTING HIS FEET WET AND PERSONALLY TAKING CHARGE OF ALL THE RESCUE OPERATIONS!
    GIBO is putting all of his effort and guidance to send more than 20 RUBBER BOATS and 25 units of M35 trucks for RESCUE OPERATION…
