Cainta is not ready for another Ondoy

cainta flood

Yes Cainta and some part of Taytay looks like they’ve been submitted to a “dry run” to battle heavy typhoon like Ondoy, and it seems that they lost the battle.

After the short but heavy rains around mid-afternoon yesterday, thousands of people and vehicles were stranded for long hours along the stretch of Ortigas extension, and that includes me and my Yamaha Mio.

It instantly created a large traffic as 3 major portions of Ortigas extension were flooded from knee to as high as hip deep.

Some say that it much higher inside some subdivision. You could imagine the phobia from an Ondoy veteran like me, who almost drowned last year. I even saw a firetruck with a boat on top traversing the flood. Everything lookslike reminiscences of last year disaster.

Only those rich people in the government service are ready for any calamity that might arise.

At least glad to know that P-noy has a better approach in getting the heart of the people. I wish this works.

@padre damaso – yup I agree with you. let’s hope for the better. Go! Go! P-Noy! Make the Philippine a better country again!

perhaps we should also approach this differently. instead of just preparing ourselves for floods why not take pro-active steps to prevent floods from happening in the first place.

we can help by changing our bad habits such as throwing garbage all over the place.

we can also start lending our voices to a growing clamor for real, long-term solutions to our environmental problems.

filipinos should start being more pro-active.

@pasigriveravenger – let’s hope for the better. I do hope those who were affected somehow learned lessons from this scenario.

Thanks very a lot for this great post;this is the type of factor that keeps me going through these day. I’ve been trying round for this site after being referred to them from a buddy and was happy when I found it after searching for some time. Being a avid blogger, I’m comfortable to see others taking initivative and contributing to the community. Just needed to remark to indicate my appreciation for your article because it’s very appleaing, and plenty of writers don’t get authorization they deserve. I am certain I’ll drop by again and will advocate to my friends.
