Oh Geez! I still felt a little dizzy from the earthquake that strike our place earlier. I thought it was only us here in our place who felt the powerful earthquake but it was also felt from different provinces and cities all over the Philippines. I noticed our tinted glass window as well as the things inside our house was shaking so we immediately went outside and also asked our neighbor if they felt the same way too.
According to the headline news, an earthquake with a magnitude of 7.9 has struck off the coast of the Philippines. Because of this, the quake prompted a tsunami warning alert level 3 which is raised in the following provinces: Northern Samar, Eastern Samar, Leyte, Southern Leyte, Surigao del Norte & Sur.
An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami that can strike coastlines near the epicenter within minutes and more distant coastlines within hours. Let us pray for our safety. God is with us!
Gosh! Rainy season is here in the Philippines and I really hate it because I feel lazy in going out. I miss the summer days where we always go out and spend our summer at the beach, at the pool and also visit all those beautiful scenery while capturing some nice photos in it.
Although summer is really hot but I like its warm weather. I can wear my bright summer clothes, flip flops and my favorite sunglasses. My thirst is easily quenched when I drink my favorite beverages. All these things makes me miss the summer days.
The photo above is the entrance road to our Barangay. Its about 15 minutes away from the city. Who would have thought that this hillside Barangay of ours was one of the affected places during typhoon Sendong. I only saw the horrible devastation and typhoon aftermath on TV but I never thought that it could also happen to us. All of us ran for our lives as we are trying to save ourselves and our family as well.
A month has passed already but the memory still lingers in our mind. However, we are trying to go with our lives. I can see some stores and market stalls are opening their businesses already. Its a good sign that we are slowly recovering from the tragedy as we move on after the storm.
If you can clearly see this picture, you will noticed the brown colored water line above the wall where these painted computer with hand print was placed. That is the level of the water where our house got hit by the flash flood a month ago. That’s only twice the length of a finger span and its our alcove or attic already. You could imagine the deep water level and why all our things got flooded and damaged from the flood.
This was from our commercial house bedroom where we usually stay and sleep. We were at the rooftop when the flash flood happened. We jumped from one rood to another and found a two story house where we stayed and waited for the flood to stop. It was such a terrible and horrifying experience for us but we thanked God that my family and I survived the tragedy. We are thankful for our lives which was still preserved by God.
