Some call it stupid, some call it actor heroism. I don't know what to call it  
Aww shit. No meme today BECAUSE NOW IS JUST NOT THE TIME.

Remember Hurricane Katrina? Well this is much worse, I heard. Ondoy's rainfall pwned Katrina like no other.

Yesterday was the worst Saturday ever. The rainfall began Friday night and went on nonstop until last night. In some places, it's still ongoing until today. The strongest moment of rainfall wasn't really that extreme but the fact that the it never stopped raining did not give the drainage system time to unclog. Houses were underwater, people were waiting on their roofs for rescue, major streets became rivers in a matter of hours, men were crossing roads via electric cables, pricks were prancing in their speedboats while ignoring wails of helpless infants, celebrities were surfing to help out people, things were that hectic. And that's not even a fraction of what Ondoy brought the country in a less than a day.

Want to be updated/informed/help? Go here for more.

Our family's alive and well. The worst that happened to us was to lose electricity (but wew epic Chiz had a generator) so there's no need to worry about us. Sadly, I can't say the same for the others. :<

Juntsu's whole house was submerged underwater. All their appliances are ruined. All his belongings are gone. His new laptop is dead.

The family of Anriz is stuck on the second floor because water on the first floor is still waist-deep. They have no food.

Still haven't heard from my waifu. Omg, I'm so worried. No news at all! And she lives in Cainta where the place is infamous for flooding. I'm so scared, I really hope she and her family is alive and well. Please be safe. ;o;

Texted Phoebo several times but she never replied. I hope that's just her being loadless/signaless.

My dad went out to help his boss whose house was ruined by the rain and a landslide. I hope he'll be okay~

Is it true that there's a bigger storm coming? Wtf I really hope not. The El Niño coming in a few months because of this calamity is already enough bad news.

Everyone else, please be safe. If you're alive and well, please let us know. We're all worried sick here.

Let's all hope for the best for now.

I feel so lucky and helpless at the same time. ;o;

This sucks so fucking much.

What bigger storm???

We're all worried about Sev, hindi daw kasi macontact. Sana naubusan lang ng battery or smth.

Hope all your friends + family are alright. Ibang klase 'to. I'm actually checking Facebook religiously for updates and texting people like mad up to now, wth.

I feel so lucky and helpless at the same time. ;o;
IKR. Virtual hug. I hope everybody gets through.

Wait, nvm, nahanap na pala sila Sev. But I'm still worried.

That's a relief!

Omg idk! Sth about 'patikim lang yung nangyari kahapon' idk. Hope it's all just an ugly rumor.

My family's alright but I haven't heard from several of my friends. I'm so worried shit. I hope the same for you.

I know what you mean! I'm texting people and stalking the internet liek whoa for any bit of news.

Really hope that 'bigger storm' is a lie. Everyone need time to recover. :<

Shit. I heard a six-day old baby died because of this.

edit: shit another typhoon to come in three days

THIS IS A LIE. Let us rest, pleassseee. A lot of people still haven't recovered/been found. D: And that post is annoying in its crypticness. Gaano ba talaga kalakas ang susunod na bagyo? It only tells me "Because - ONDOY will happen again..." with the dramatic pause and all. PATIKIM LANG BA TALAGA?

All the deaths break my heart. It's really depressing.

Grabe talaga kahapon hindi ko akalain na ganito kalala. It was so surreal, parang, huwaw, matinding baha. Pero noong gumagabi na,nakausap ko na ang ibang tao at nakita ko ang news. Habang patagal, pahirap nang pahirap, gah.

I KNOW. I really hope it's not even as strong as Ondoy. But the fact that it will come is enough grim news. Shit. Will it ever end?

Naiiyak na ako, ayoko na. Hope to hear good news soon. :<

We thought my mother was over-acting when she was looking for a truck to pick my brother up, didn't think it would escalate to this. ;o;

Add me to the list of flooded homes. :( If the house wasn't elevated, my family would been stuck at the second floor/roof already. Alas, the first floor was covered in flood -- knee-high nga eh.

JFC, the whole thing was scary as shit. D: *hugs*

Know of a couple whose houses are either submerged in water or floating somewhere. ;o;

I hope your family is safe.

Stay strong!

I really hope so too. I'm so scared for them, I can't sleep. Imagining the worst is so depressing. Still hoping for the best.

Sweetheart. I agree so much with the "I feel lucky but helpless." I feel lucky but selfish. I feel lucky but guilty.

I'm so glad you're safe.
Bakang Batugan: Forlornkyoy on September 30th, 2009 01:44 am (UTC)
It's not your fault you're safe, mommy.

Glad you are too ♥
