Tropical Storm Haiku: Hagupit ni Habagat

 In the Philippines, Manila and its environs, at least 15 people died and about 250,000 fled their homes after the flooding and landslides caused by heavy rain.  More than half of the metropolis is now underwater. There is a danger water can destroy the wall of the dam, located near a large reservoir.  Estimates of the weathermen are alarming: the rains caused by tropical storm of "haiku" in the coming days will continue.

Devastating photos from all parts of the Philippines. Floods are all over the place and even after the water had subsided in some area, it was still a disaster because most of them lose not their houses but almost everything.  To start all over again, as i watched the news, one of the victims said: "Hindi po namin alam paano kami magsisimula ulit, wala po kaming naisalbang mga gamit,kahit pera ho wala naanod na lahat ng baha. "  Since Haiku isnt declared as a typhoon so all of us wasnt that much worried "maulan lang talaga" but the rain really wont stop and we were all shocked of this very strong tropical storm.  I salute to the brave rescuers who willingly risk their own life to save other people's lives, to the good samaritans who help each other despite of their situation and also to the foundations who provide food and shelter to all the affected areas.

Fellow bloggers how are you? Hope you're all safe.  Lets all pray for a good weather as soon as possible.  God Bless all.

  3. Thank God, natapos na din si Habagat pero itong si Typhoon Helen mukhang nagbabadya >_<

    Marami din ang mga binahang lugar dito sa San Mateo, Rizal pero thank God talaga at hindi naman kami inabot ng baha dito.

    Stay safe!
