Tuesday, June 30, 2009


This video was taken at about 9:30 PM (June 29,2009), when an unexpected sudden rage of water started to cover what remains to be seen on the floor of our humble house. Just thirty minutes after, the water was already at a level enough to drown a 5 feet 4 inches tall man who doesn't know how to swim and who doesn't have enough initiative to hold on to something fixed and sturdy. Roughly ten minutes after, the water was about 6 feet already. From the time the flow of water started to the time it almost reached the 2nd floor of our house, it was just about 40 minutes. Of course, we prayed and asked our friends and loved ones to help us in praying, even before the water reached that point. Moments after, we had finished the chaplet of the Divine Mercy and by that time the water was already one step lower on our stairway. Then, it continued on regressing at a snail's pace. When I woke up at around 5:45 am, the water was just at the knee level. So, I started on throwing out water from our house. Later on, my elder brother joined with me, then, the rest of my brothers and cousins.

Our whole June 30, 2009 was devoted to cleaning the house (except for me and my elder brother who had to go to the hospital for a scheduled diagnostic procedure).

It is now 7:20 pm and we had just removed the mud inside our house, as well as on the furnitures. We had not arranged our things yet, including our clothings. We had done so much for today already.

We have a need to rest, eat and recharge ourselves...

For tomorrow will be another busy day for all of us...:-)
