Tropical storm Ondoy, international name Ketsana, leaves more than 144 people dead, 60,000 families affected or nearly half a million population been evacuated to 204 evacuation centers in Manila. This is double the rainfall recorded on Hurricane Katrina, that took place in New Orleans. Typhoon Ondoy has recorded a 411mm rainfall in just 9 hours, exceeding the 391mm average rainfall, and the 331mm rainfall recorded in the 1967 typhoon. It has affected 24 Luzon provinces, declared under a "state of calamity", including Aurora, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Nueva Ecija, Pangasinan, Tarlac, Zambales, Pampanga, Bulacan, Rizal, Quezon, Isabela, Mt. Province, Ifugao, Benguet, La Union, Ilocos Sur, Laguna, Batangas, Cavite, Occidental Mindoro, Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, and Camarines Norte. The aftermath of the typhoon has left most parts of Manila and Rizal provinces with lack of food, water, shelter, clothing, and emotional distress. They don't know how to cope up with this traumatic experience as the world witness the helpless and ailing nation of the Philippines. When will people gonna learn from the past mistakes whether environmental, political, whichever. Climate change requires people to change their wrongdoings, eliminating the personal and material motives among ourselves.

“A state of national calamity has been declared over 27 provinces in 7 regions...”

Anyway, I was lucky I lived by the mountains of Antipolo so we aren’t that affected (except the surrounding cities) but I was really scared… Thousands are homeless at the moment and lots of people died... Typhoon Ondoy just badly hit the Philippines and now another typhoon is expected to be in the Philippine responsibility in 2-3 days…
