Typhoon Ondoy wreaks havoc
Typhoon Ondoy brought continuous heavy rains in Luzon since Friday afternoon (Sept. 25) that by Saturday morning, the flood has started to rise and many were forced to flee.
Here in Fairview, Quezon City, about 50% of the area was affected with floods. North Fairview, Sitio Ruby (Sapamanai), and West Fairview saw some parts with water rising as high as a house.
Our own area in East Fairview was also affected. We live in a condo compound and by Saturday lunchtime, we saw the waters in a nearby creek spill. Here’s the video I took yesterday when the water outside the compound was still knee-deep.
In just a couple of hours, we saw the water come inside the condo compound. It reached the ground floor and residents there had to transfer to the higher floors.
And this is the video taken from our window. The cars in our street were submerged.
My own parents were stranded in Bulacan after they went to Nueva Ecija yesterday morning to attend a wedding. They left Nueva Ecija by noon because they received info that the nearby dams would release water.
It took them 12 hours to get home because they got stranded in Bocaue, Bulacan. They had to get off the vehicle because the tollway patrol already told passengers to get out. They had to take shelter in the headquarter of the Manila Tollways.
