Typhoon Ondoy just passed the province of Pampanga here in the Philippines a while ago at 2 pm. And God when I turn on the television and saw the news everything I saw and heard was horrifying!
Just look at this image:
It’s been weeks since the last typhoon ( I think ) and today was like 30 days of rainfall poured for just 6 hours! Many people are now affected with the storm and almost everybody is devastated of what happen. And just a few hours ago President Arroyo declared 26 areas in Luzon including Metro Manila, under a state of calamity due to floods caused by tropical storm Ondoy.
Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro said the provinces placed under a state of calamity were Aurora, Quirino, Nueva Viscaya, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Tarlac, Zambales, Pampanga, Bulacan, Rizal, Quezon, Isabela, Mountain Province, Ifugao, Benguet, La Union, Ilocos Sur, Cavite, Batangas, Mindoro Occidental, Mindoro Oriental, Marinduque, Camarines Norte, Bataan and Metro Manila.
Hope that this calamity will end soon this evening so that many people will be save and be safe. Let’s pray…
