Flashflooding

The strong rains that fell down last night caused more damage in the suburbs than Milenyo (Xangsane) did, by the means of a flash flood.

Lower areas have been submerged in water for hours, causing major traffic jams in main routes and leaving commuters stranded. We got home around 11PM last night, as the waters have subsided around that time, and evidence of a passing flood can be seen. And I even heard on the news this morning that for the first time in years, Antipolo had a landslide.

Am a bit glad that Neneng (Bebinca) changed it’s course moving toward North Luzon. But still, brace yourselves.

PS* Bebinca? Sounds yummy.

    Taft was submerged for a good 3 hours due to the rains and most roads were unpassable. I wonder how long will this rainy season last?

    Oooh, so does that mean Nene would just graze us? She better come in this week!

    it seems the new typhoon has shifted course. i’m so glad it changed its mind ‘coz after milenyo, we definitely need a breather to recuperate from the damages.
