Just a quick update

I feel a little sad just to go to my Sim game. :( Starting September 25, the rains did not stop here until Sunday morning. My husband and I thought it's just an ordinary rainy day, I even cooked breakfast before he left for duty. Not until lunchtime did he call and ask me to watch the news, that there is a Typhoon. At the time, he was on duty and checking me at home. He said that on his way to work, the streets are already flooded, rain is heavier and some areas, water levels are already above 15ft. Tropical Storm Ketsana or Ondoy as it is called here hit our country very hard. I started to panic when I saw the heavy flood on tv news and what's going on in greater Manila {where my hubby works}. I can talk just right to him until 9pm and he said he's on his way home, but after that, all cellphones went dead already. No network coverage anymore. I waited. Hope he'll make it home safe. 12am, 2am? I was so desperate and asked anyone even a landline operator if he needs to get rescued. My husband was stranded for more than 6 hours. The rains did not stop from Friday night to Sunday very early morning. The flood was so bad and some areas were evacuated already. Residents are already trapped on their houses' second floors. I was so thankful my husband made it home safely and that me and my family live in areas where it does not get flooded. I feel very sad for all the other Filipinos who are affected by this tragedy. Most especially those residing in Marikina, Pasig, Rizal, Bulacan, and the rest. Many people lost their homes. Last I heard there are more than 278,000 families already affected. There are reported deaths already. According to PAGASA, the storm is now moving westward going to Vietnam, however, there's a new low pressure area building up [far southeast of Philippines] and expecting to hit Phillipines again by Thursday. We are hoping that this new low pressure area won't be another full-blown tropical storm. The rescue operations are not even done yet. Watching the news is heartbreaking. Our prayers goes to all the affected Filipino people. Do not lose hope.
