Bagyong Ondoy is the typhoon that hit the Philippines on Saturday, September 26, 2009. It resulted to severe flooding and the death of hundreds of people.
I’m sharing some of the photos I took when the typhoon was still here.

On the next day, at T. Alonzo Street
At T. Alonzo Street. The trashes make it look much worse.
The flood water subsided.
Thing is, usually when there is a typhoon, there’s no flood in that area. I guess it’s the trashes and the heavy amount of rainwater. The typhoon Ondoy carried heavy water but didn’t bring strong wind.
According to some news, there are 3 more strong typhoons that are about to come to the Philippines. Many victims still haven’t recovered from the calamity. If you’re residing in the Philippines and weren’t affected in any way by the typhoon (brownout for days, no water supply, flooded house, etc.), then you are very very lucky.
Let’s just hope that the supposed to be next typhoons turn to different directions… away from the Philippines.
