The Sudden Flood That Hit Our Town

Electricity has just resumed today so it's only now that I've uploaded my shots of the storm that caused big floods all over Metro Manila and nearby provinces. I was left in the house with 3 kids and my 77-year old Mom. My sister and husband went to work and on the sudden flood that rise up suddenly within an hour I told them not to go home as it's not safe on the road anymore.

Our place never experienced a flood like this one as far as I can remember since I was born. Luckily with the help of my brother who rushed to our house in the morning and my neighbour we were able to secure our appliances to a higher level. All important documents and clothes in our first floor room were transferred to upper floor. I stopped rescuing things when the water is up to my neck. When I finally stopped at the upper floor I had the chance to take some shots of the flood which was amazingly risen up so fast our steel gate and car was submerged.
The shots below were taken on the second day when the waters were slowly subsiding:
