Philippine Habagat

This weather condition (Habagat) that affecting the Philippines as of the moment is really unprecedented in many form. I say that because, according to PAGASA (Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration ), the 24-hr accumulated rains of this Heavy Habagat has surpassed Ondoy. Habagat has (472 mm) of rainfall while Ondoy has (455mm) of rainfall. If I may recall, Ondoy has more power in terms of rainfall in a span of just 6 hours however, this Habagat  have the longest rainfall and the amount of rain is massive.

We don't usually accumulate flood water unless the other area in our place is already flooded. For the second time around, first it was Ondoy  because of heavy rains that Habagat brought, our place accumulate an ankle deep of flood water. Not as enormous as what in other areas of Manila incurred, but still something to worry about. May we all learn to appreciate and take care of our environment, so that this won't happen again.

Here are some shots inside and outside our house.
