Typhoon Ondoy Aftermath

I've stopped watching videos of the flood because it became too depressing and surreal, even. Who would have thought that it would come to the point where cars get whisked off by the flood waters?




This is Eastwood, where our office is located.

Edit: This is Eastwood (or, err, the river beside it):




And this is Katipunan, where our apartment is.



The floodwaters may have started to ebb, but a lot of people need help. Now is not the time to bicker about politicians and faulty drainage systems, nor is it the time to start attacking insensitive people on the internet. Let's save that for later, when we've managed to do all we can. Find out how you can help here.

  1. That's not Eastwood, that's Bonifacio Global City.

    Pero binaha rin ang mga kalsada ng Eastwood. I imagine na umapaw ang tubig mula sa Marikina River sa basement parking ng TechnoOne Plaza.

  4. Hi Ella!

    Yup grabe Katipunan. Na-stranded kapatid ko sa Shakey's ng 4 na oras bago nakauwi sa amin (sa B. Gonzales na ko nakatira).

  6. Eto marami pa ring trabaho.

    Okay na kami. Mabilis namang nawala baha. May minor damage lang sa bahay. Nasira yung screen door tsaka natangay sa baha yung mga halaman na inaalagaan ng mommy ko.
