    Looks like most of the R.P will skirt this one apart from the extreme North..Batanes etc.

    Well it didn't skirt us....had a terrible night but thankfully all secure.
    The Marikina River reached alarm level2 with massive evacuation but not as bad as a few weeks ago when the water level exceeded No1 alarm level. The resulting floods were terrible. Worst thing was about 15 inches of mud left behind together with a such a lot of garbage....

    Hope you didn't suffer any damages Graham in your place....

    Oh dear!!
    Ive always said that Manila is not fit for residential purpose now that there are so many people there.. Much of the place is actually below sea level and they are surprised when it floods!!

    Sadly, millions of people locate in high flood areas. Especially those poorer folks who do not have finances to decide.
    Even during normal thunderstorms roads get flooded over ankle depth....not good when getting off jeepneys etc.
    So much of NCR is below sea level level and close to river levels....

    Here in Marikina so many millions have been used but still there is flooding always during rainy season...it'll never get fixed IMHO
    Most of Quezon City gets flooded.

    Actually we do have some regrets about our relocation here and have a strategy to move away in a year or two.
    For a huge city the opportunities are somewhat limited....

    As always, those who can least protect themselves take the biggest hits year on year on year

    Nothing out of the ordinary to report in Angeles, winds were up a bit but nothing to cause any concern

    Actually it hit pretty hard in our area of Pangasinan.

    The house was flooded in parts, our 10m metre high phone signal mast (for the internet/wifi) blew down, and we were without power until a few hours ago... so for what, a couple of days ?

    Other than that, all seems fine.... though I haven't actually been out of our front gate for 3 days, to be fair.

    .... And yes, I have celebrated my birthday by subtracting another year... as per usual.

    Thoughts are with EACH of you - and your families - who've been affected in ANY way by these latest adverse weather conditions in the Philippines.

    On a very much cheerier note, ... MANY HAPPY RETURNS in celebrating your birthday, Graham.

    Glad to hear that Steve.

    My Mrs has just showed me pics of the local town ... flooding and damage.

    Made me realise how lucky we were ... only just up the road.
