While making this post the water level in the street is so high and I think it is almost reach my floor. I'm here in my room at the second level, heavy rain is still pouring, there was an announcement of high tide in about an hour. The Mayor already announce the suspension of classes in all levels tomorrow and I'm glad they did it as early tonight. I'm shaking here while typing, I'm little bit dizzy too I'm scared what will happen it this rain will not stop for the whole night. It is almost 1am here and I'm glad we still have electric power and internet connection.

Take care. Check your emergency lights and I am sure you've already secured everything that must be secured. We are experiencing the same here right now. Although my place is safe compared to other nearby cities and places where waters already raise up to 6-10 feet. The Lamesa DAM already reach the maximum level and now releasing water to avoid damaged that cause main roads- highways submerged on water and now unpassable. Earlier while you and bhaby are trying to reach me - I am on duty with our rescue team and had few people evacuated in our building. I need to stay awake this whole night, the rain never stops and if this rain continue for many more hours I am sure we will be stranded since other roads are already flooded. Just take preliminary precautions..

Yhea maybe because of the climate change that's why it affects all over the world. So we must be careful all the time. I post some of the pics I captured from the flood outside and even inside my house in my FB page .

Heavy rain still pouring. I wish we could get some of that here. Hot and dry. I would be shaking too. I hope you get up to another level and the rain stops. I hope you continue to have electric power and your internet connection. Good luck to you and hope the level goes down. My thoughts are with you.

It's good that you still have electric and internet there. Hopefully, you will keep services throughout so that you can stay online and keep yourself distracted from the flooding.

When rain gets that high there needs to be some sort of drainage for it. I know here in ny it gets like that but we have sewers that the water runs down into. I feel bad for people who I hear about with mass flooding in their homes. it ruins everything they own.

I really do consider our family to be lucky that we don't live in a flood plain. There are times that we do have a lot of heavy rains and it will cause the creeks and rivers to flood, but we don't live in an area where it would be possible to flood. If our family lived just a few miles away from where we live, there are some homes that will flood and I can't imagine the fear that people that live in that area go through when we start to get some really heavy rains.

Rescuers on the flooded road - Rescuers braved the flood to rescue the stranded people on top of their roofs.
I was just as nervous the other night because the right was non-stop. I feared the flood because our place is prone to flooding. I almost did not sleep at all. I was just praying every now and then. Later in the midnight I saw the flood coming. I also saw the people walking and evacuating through the flood. I am so thankful the flood did not reach our house. We stayed safe and for that I was thankful to God. As I turned on the TV, I saw the terrible destruction of flood to the people in Marikina. How sad for them! But thank God there are heroic rescuers who risk their lives just to save the flood victims.

What is your location? I do have a lot of friends and mates whose houses are also flooded ankle to knee deep already while the streets floods are rising as high as waist level. Now, watching the news makes me shiver. I hope the flood subside and the rains stop already. Good thing that electricity and the internet still keeps you company to distract you out of the inconvenience brought about by floods.
7 Aug 12
That must be so scarey! WE have had some local flooding here, family nearby got the bottom floor of thier homes flooded. We were very luck and it missed us out. You must be very worried and anxious. I am sure everyone here is happy to keep chatting to you for as long as you can stay online. Try and keep calm (not easy I know) Try and get anything of value as high up as you can in your house, on top of cupbaords etc NEwspapers, blanekts and twoeks in doorways can help stem any flooding for a short time. Hope and pray you are ok

Hi dear, Hope all of you are well and fine. It seems you all are really in panic and the area is still convered with water. Take proper care and you need to be much more alerted for any uneven incidents. Hope you all are in the builiding, but safe. Also, take care about children and elder people at home. I think you may have to switch off the lights and de-fuse the power supply as a precaution because if the electricity is happend to contact with water, it will be dangerous. Please provide update if possible and most importantly, take care about yourself first and go for other things. Take care.

News is bad up until now. It seems that the raining and flooding is getting worse every hour. I hope you guys are not in a very bad shape out there. Are you in a situation that may need emergency evacuation any time?
