My cousin posted this on her FB account, a picture of the bridge going to our barangay in the province. The river is overflowing and so many people in some areas and barangays are trapped in their homes needing immediate rescue. I talked to my brother early this morning and he said that they could not go down to the town proper and cross this bridge to buy drinking water since their water supply was also cut-off due to the massive and destructive flood which has not yet subsided until now. I could no longer contact anyone there. Our barangay is high up the mountain so luckily they are free of flood but they need help with food supply and potable water. It’s a good thing the governor has put up a page asking for list of places in the whole province where rescue is needed. Our town have so many barangays submerged in water. It reminds me of typhoon Ondoy, the pain and heartaches of losing lives and properties, the hardship of going back to your home which was full of mud and the price of renovating – replacing cabinets, repainting walls, cleaning everything and disposing appliances and hundreds of books and mags which were flooded. We have opted for built-in cabinets which won’t topple down in case of flood or earthquakes.
They need help ASAP.
The bridge is as high as a four-storey building from the floor of the river so you can just imagine how high the flood water is.
