At 5am yesterday, I was awaken by a text message from my officemate informing that the flood/water level inside their house was already hip deep. I immediately got up from bed and checked outside from the terrace. That time it was only ankle level and got worsen hours and hours later.
Photos taken right in front where I live, at the intersection of Cabling Lane and Rosa Gonzales Lane, which we call “crossroad“.
The third shot above was taken minutes before my cellphones went dead. It even gotten worst and reached the neck level an hour later.
5 out of 15 steps gone.
What’s scary about it was the strong current.
Our place was actually luckier than the rest of the places in Olongapo. Going out later to fill up our food stocks and to also see what’s left for us outside. 🙁
