Typhoon ONDOY: what a disaster!

Typhoon Ondoy batters Manila.

Death toll hits 50. (as of 09-27-09)
UPDATE: as of 09-28-09 climbed up to 106 dead and missing

It was a major flood because places (like ours in Makati) that are not flood-prone experienced massive flooding and had our share of flood water that was neck-deep yesterday. Now, it's knee-deep outside and we obviously can't still go out.


flood outside our house as of 2:00 pm

Location: Brgy. Olympia Makati near Shopwise pasong tamo and PRC







poor Vios submerged in water and this guy trying to rob something inside tsk tsk

Location: just in front of our house in Makati








flood outside our house as of 9:00 pm

floodwater had risen above chest level






waist-deep floodwater inside our house and it's our first time to experience this .. argh!!

worst.flood.ever.
and this has got to be the
worst.month.ever.
wake me up when September ends...









majority of the streets in makati and nearby areas are currently flooded... and that includes this underpass in Ayala



underpass=underwater=unpassable








Thousands of people were stranded


Over 1,800 people were forced to flee their homes and take refuge in evacuation centers due to rising waters.








Heavy rains brought by tropical storm "Ondoy"
results to major flood

-->cars fully submerged, ravaged and probably need major repairs when things subside

Location: Buendia, Cash & Carry










Cristine Reyes and other stars like Jennica Garcia, Carmina Villaruel, Gladys Reyes, Camille Pratts,etc.. not spared by Ondoy.

Even some celebrities felt the wrath of tropical storm 'Ondoy' as rising flood waters entered and ravaged their plush homes. Cristine was stranded along with her mother and younger brother on top of their two-storey home in Provident Village in Marikina City for almost nine hours..

She was rescued by her sister's bf using his jetski.





even posh and high-end places like The Fort... not spared


It is indeed overwhelming and this has been called an epic flood.. tragic and this has been the worst so far.











Ondoy brought havoc...

Marikina submerged, literally.

Pagasa said that a month's worth of rain fell in six hours.... thousands of people needed to be rescued and trapped in their houses, these people were waiting to be rescued on their rooftops...







-->car submerged in water


Location, Araneta Avenue, QC











massive flooding all over Quezon City

Location: Katipunan

















-->big waves of floodwaters at katipunan, flooded streets due to heavy downpour

Typhoon Ondoy, has been the worst Metro Manila has ever seen since 1968.








Ortigas Extension, Pasig


-->scary..










Insurance companies must be fuming mad and they should seriously have to deal with this weather and I mean whether they like it or not..














Ayala underpass=underwater

















-->some bunch of losers.. ugh!!


shame on you! you should get your lazy a** helping out other people instead of sitting there and getting drunk..




My thoughts and prayers are with all the Filipinos suffering of this massive climate catastrophe and all victims of Typhoon Ondoy. All I could do is to say a prayer that they will all be safe and well. Please give time for prayers and special thoughts for the victims of flood wrought by Typhoon Ondoy.
