Hagupit ng Habagat

Literally: Onslaught of Habagat (Monsoon Rains)

Three years ago, in September 2009, there was a tropical depression called Ondoy and it brought havoc to a lot of cities in Metropolitan Manila. I live in Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City and it’s one of the hardest hit areas of typhoon Ondoy.

Fast forward today, there is no tropical storm but it’s been raining for the past week or so and it’s raining hard. In fact, Pinagbuhatan, Pasig City is again flooded. When I came from work last night, I have to rent a pedicab to traverse the flooded street of Urbano Velasco Avenue on my way to our home.

It’s been raining hard the whole day and based on the news and Yahoo! Philippines, you’ll see that it’s like typhoon Ondoy all over again. Here are some of the pictures I saw on my Facebook page.

The flood waters are already on our street and I fear that if it continues to rain the whole night, we’ll probably wake up tomorrow submerge in knee-deep flood waters. The last time this happened during typhoon Ondoy, it took a month before the flood waters subsided. If that happens, we’ll have to evacuate to my brother’s house.

Be safe everyone.
