Saturday night at around 9 in the evening, I was in shocked as I watched the Greater Manila being drowned in massive water from the Typhoon Ondoy. Water floods almost swallowed the houses; muddy roads covered the streets; cars are like toys dragged and park in the highways in the city; and a lot of people lost their loved ones and their homes. No words can express the grief that surrounds the country.
As we are comfortably sleeping in our beds, some people uploaded their condition as the water slowly eats their entire house. Others were taken away by the flowing river. It was a far cry here in Davao. Speeding boats were also used to rescue people because a lot of people were trapped at the top of their houses to escape the deathly water.
With the pictures and videos above, the Philippines is in dire need of your help. Please visit http://www.redcross.org.ph/ for your donation. Typhoon Ondong left the country but it left the people with so much to grief.
