I dont know if you guys heard news about Manila. Its been non stop rain here. According to our weather bureau there are no storms or typhoons its just the seasonal 'habagat' which is bringing in so much rain. Yes folks its been raining on and off since Sunday but the frequency of the rains are so tight that it has triggered floods all over Manila and other neighboring cities. A lot of people have been evacuated.
In my case as I went home the other night all roads that led to our house were flooded. So I ended up staying at a nearby hotel. Its my second night already and Im worried that it is still raining and the floods are not subsiding. Im praying that everything goes back to normal. I miss the sun. Though I love rains the suffering that the floods and continuous rain have brought to the people has been tremendously overwhelming. MY prayers go out to families and people stranded, homeless, displaced, and those who are without food, water, electricity.
