Typhoon Ondoy’s Anniversary

It was September 26 last year when Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) hit the Philippines. It brought the worst rainfall to Metro Manila and nearby provinces and flooded the streets. The flood water reached 20 feet in some areas, the highest in history resulting to the loss of hundred of lives.

The memorial park near our subdivision. The grounds were covered with green Bermuda grass before the typhoon. The estimated depth of flood when this picture was taken is two feet then it reached five feet later in the afternoon.

It was the worst tropical depression the Filipinos had experienced. I am hoping that it would be the last as well.

  1. Yes, who can ever forget typhoon Ondoy. We were marooned in the second floor of our house for more than two days. Luckily, we were able to bring most of our valuable items in the second floor. So many lives and untold properties were lost during that typhoon. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
