typhoon Ondoy~lets pray for our countrymen.

Sunday, September 27, 2009
hi guys and gals..okay this post was not planned but since rain keeps on pouring down our land,i just cant ignore the fact that this is not your regular/ordinary rain...i just watched the news regarding the damages that Typhoon Ondoy left us,although its still ongoing i think it has reached its peak of destruction,and what we are experiencing right now(sunday) until Monday will not be as destructive as it was yesterday...well at least i hope so..

Typhoon Ondoy is currently the Philippines worst typhoon that caused massive floods in Manila for over 20 years!!....and it was said that it is much stronger than Katrina..almost all of us knew what Hurricane Katrina did,a lot of people died and got injured..houses fell down,trees swept out of its roots.tides as high as a building etc.it was terrifying to see that it was happening here in my country..here is a picture of how the typhoon looks via satellite..

it almost managed to masked the whole country(Philippines)..its huge..imagine that..i wasn't able to see updates of this,not until now...not because i dont care..frankly the whole area where i live was out of cellphone coverage,cellphones were down..powers were down as well,for 12 hours or so.Me,Mr R. and Lil R slept with no electrical thingamabob or whatsoever,Mr R and me managed to give comfort to Lil R,we fanned him with a large card board,we took turns until the sun went up..ZzzZZZzz..Well at least for us that's the worst part,we barely noticed what has happened outside our comfort zone..well as soon as i click the TV i saw a lot of stranded citizens,cars floating,frozen bodies due to mud slide and flash floods.None of it is good news to me.i saw this site which shows pictures of how ondoy flooded the country..CLICK ME..

it gave us a month worth of rain in just 6 hours or so..a lot of people are still stranded and missing due to the typhoon,good thing is that good Samaritans from everywhere are helping not only financially but they voluntarily let themselves in by helping packed relief goods...look at how deep the flood is.

so as soon as the power went up i felt i needed to let the others know how destructive this typhoon was..but overlooking that calamity some of us still managed to reach out their hands to give help to those who needs them..below are some sites that tackles about typhoon ondoy
