Experience with Typhoon "Ondoy"

The typhoon "Ondoy" hit Metro Manila yesterday.

While I was at work, I never realized how hard the rain was until Lowela, Debbie and I were on our way home. The wait at a shed in Ayala Avenue was agonizing. The rain poured so hard and it was accompanied with strong winds. The umbrellas we brought didn't help us as we got all wet just standing for about an hour waiting for a ride home.

We hurried to a jeepney half thankful that one did came and halted right in front of us. To our dismay, the jeepney can't take us to our destination. Streets from Buendia going to Pasong Tamo were already flooded. We didn't have any choice but try and look for any other means to get home. Fortunately we found one!

Here's a photo of me and Lowela waiting for our ride.

Thank God we arrived home safely. We didn't report to work today since the flood hasn't subsided yet.

The typhoon was all over the news. Other parts of Luzon experienced worst conditions brought about by "Ondoy". According to the weather forecast, "Ondoy" is on its way to West Norwest of Luzon. The provinces of Pangasinan, Zambales, Bataan and Lubang Island will experience rains and gusty winds. I hope the Typhoon will finally get out of the country because it has already caused too much damages.

I feel sorry for those who lost their houses and who lost their loved ones during this tragedy. Please help me pray for my fellow countrymen who were greatly affected by this calamity.
