Typhoon Ondoy

Im sure some of you have seen the pictures of what the typhoon "Ondoy" has done to the Metro. A lot of people are stranded because of the floods. Its scary, 1-2 days (correction: one months worth of rain in 6 hours!!) of rain and this is what happens. I hope all of you are safe! And I pray for those who arent as lucky to have shelter and food, people who are stranded, and the victims of this typhoon.

oh my Lord....i've heard of the flooding and i can't believe how much it flooded in the katipunan area! I used to go to school near there, and we had typhoons and all that sh*T and never in my Philippines days did we experienced flood, at least not in that level.

The tragic scenario typhoon "Ondoy" have caused is really devastating. Most of the people don't expect the floods to be that high in their area. But what's the good thing right now is that there are lots of people across tne country and also all over the world that pledges to give money and relief goods to those affected
families. I'm pretty sure that Gawad Kalinga is also taking its part in helping those calamity victims.

It’s very sad. Lord hears for our prayer for these people who are victims, died and survives of this tragedy. Thank you for sharing ways to help those that are suffering due to the Typhoon.

Nice post. Thanks for sharing. I hope that preventative measures can be put in place soon. One thing that can be done which costs nothing is each individual take responsibility for their garbage and put it where it belongs instead of throwing it all over the streets, rivers, and everywhere else.
