the rain poured yesterday at 6pm which prompted the car painter to stop whatever he is n doing, then it turned to heavy downpour at 730pm , an overnight downpour, at 5am, the water level is dangerously high in some areas and raised from yellow to Orange alert, then at 6am, Manila is on Red Rainfall alarm, which prompted the suspension of Classes  in all levels  and govt offices to suspend work. then at 10am, the rain stopped.

take a look at this pic, heres our building, rain water went to the 4th floor, and the street where my suv is parked? is flooded for the first time. in 25 yrs. more pics can be seen here

As of now, Manila is in RED rainfall alert, that means  evacuation for low lying areas. La Mesa and Marikina river is near spilling level, and many parts of  Manila is affected by the sudden overnight downpour of rainwater  caused by #MarioPH.  here are some of the pics I seen in twitter it does not belong to me. credits to ABS CBN, Rapper.

Floodwaters of epic proportions are not new to us anymore, Flashback to 2009,  We met the first monster flasflood called Ondoy, In just 9 hours, of Sept 24, 2012, Ondoy dumped over a month’s volume of rain. The typhoon lasted for a few days, but the recovery from it was long, tough and, to those directly affected, painful. brand new cars were sold for less than 40k. and I bought plenty of them for parts.

In recent years, rains brought by the southwest monsoon – locally known as habagat – and enhanced by nearby storms have become as destructive as the big storms  like pedring, milenyo and yolanda.

In August 2012, the habagat was enhanced by a typhoon with international codename Haikui.

In the same month the following year, another habagat was enhanced by severe tropical storm Maring (international name Trami). which triggered massive flodding and destroyed or washed away new cars. (which I bought for spare parts).

What can we do to  stop another Ondoy from happening? as of now? NONE. we can only prepare, by transferring and/or moving our cars in an elevated parking, we can only  do a little now. because the actual preparation should be done last summer. and not now. 
grr!!!!!!NOTHING HAS CHANGED. YES, OUR ROAD HAS. THE ROAD ONLY. THE ROAD.... but  the draining system has not!!

this is your loverboy DENNIS signing out. 

I hope there wont be any epic flooding in Mckinley SM Aura tomorow when I attend  Bloggapalooza with friends 
say safe everyone.
