Torrential Rains

Photo of Manila City Hall area taken two days ago. By now more horrendous under water Manila+nearby Luzon provinces photos are allover the net. The flood source is a news in that sense that it wasn't a super typhoon at all. It was caused by  "torrential rains" following typhoon Gener which later had gotten different international names. Torrential rains?, now we have added a new word in our local weather experienced dictionary. I'm quite 'omg' to what next.

Marikina residents waiting to be rescued. The same city which was so much affected by "Ondoy" had again went through the same ordeal. This makes me hundred folds thankful that my family is residing in Las Pinas which is so lucky not to be a flooded-prone sub-urban city. If there were flooded areas in Las Pinas, they were only isolated cases and had not reached our area. So far.

Having been safe and well had made me so thankful but never joyous. My heart goes to the thousands of displaced victims of this latest catastrophe in our country.  Many are temporary housed in evacuation centers around the city up to this day.
The sun is a little up today. No one will surely know if it would stay up there for the whole day. But for the victims it needs more than a beaming sun to alleviate the difficulties they are going through. They need HELP!
For those who are like me who wish to extend a hand to our affected kababayans, you can visit the website for links to relief operations and evacuation centers.
God bless us all.
